KIEV, October 28 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s new parliament will have enough pragmatic politicians to further enhance relations with Russia, the head of Ukraine’s Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, parliamentarian Anatoly Kinakh, said in an interview with Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“Ukraine and Russia are fraternal neighbour countries that have the vast potential for further cooperation,” he said. “This concerns not only economic relations. We have a strong platform of mutual sympathies and confidence that have been built for centuries. We have a common history and friendly relations. And we will do our utmost to build modern, equal and mutually advantageous relations on this strong basis.”
“The fact that the share of foreign trade with Russia totals 34 percent means hundreds of thousands of jobs for Ukraine. I am confident that in the future Ukraine’s relations with Russia will remain strategic and that Ukraine’s new parliament will have enough parliamentarians to promote stronger relations with Russia,” Kinakh said.
