MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Russia wants its neighbor Ukraine to be a united and predictable state but Kiev still has a long way to go to reach this goal, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
"Russia has always been interested in a united, predictable and prosperous Ukraine," he said. "Unfortunately, the country still has a long way to go," Peskov added.
Russia has no written scenarios of integrating the Donbass region in southeast Ukraine into its structure, any hypothetical deliberations on this score are impossible, Dmitry Peskov stressed:
"There are no such written scenarios."
"This is why, we are alarmingly watching the country [Ukraine] consciously tear a big region [Donbass] from itself," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"We consider as impossible eventual deliberations in this context," Peskov said in response to a request to say whether such developments were possible in the future.
