KIEV, February 27 (Itar-Tass) - A Russian-Ukrainian summit may take place in March, Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov told journalists on Wednesday.
“I expect to get the exact information about the high-level political meeting soon. I think that the summit will take place in March,” Zurabov said.
