MOSCOW, September 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s federal agency for the CIS, compatriots living abroad and international humanitarian cooperation attaches special importance to stronger relations with Ukraine, the Rossotrudnichestvo deputy head told a news conference at Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The two countries should strengthen friendly relations, Georgy Muradov said.
“Only this can preserve and multiply those values and traditions that have always existed between our nations,” he said.
The official recalled that the Russian government injected around 150 million roubles for the youth programme.
“These funds are allocated for the work with youth organizations from all over the world,” Muradov said adding that Ukraine was one of the priority directions.
He expressed an opinion that there are some forces in the world community that “want to keep Ukraine from Russia.” Russia should “conduct active work with Ukraine’s youth” to avert this trend.
“We remained in history as we were together,” Muradov said.
He called on young people of Russia and Ukraine to more actively participate in building “Eurasian civilization.”
“The visit of the Ukrainian delegation is exclusively important, because the future configuration on the Eurasian space will in many respects depend on our relations with Ukraine,” Muradov said.
