MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. Russia maintains contacts with Ukraine, including via the Foreign Ministry, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mariya Zakharova said Tuesday.
"Certainly, these contacts exist," Zakharova said on Ekho Mosvky radio. "Foreign ministers Sergey Lavrov and Pavlo Klimkin hold phone talks, meet, hold meetings in multilateral formats, exchanges on the sidelines of multilateral forums."
"We certainly communicate also with the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow," she said. "They attend events, including those relating to the CIS. Someone is present: either the ambassador or the person who performs these functions."
"Everyday issues are solved," the diplomat said. "Citizens of our countries go to each other’s places, no one has canceled interstate communication. However, they do that far from the level that relations had been at."
