MOSCOW, February /ITAR-TASS/. Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov “would like to believe” that Ukraine as a state would not split. He said this answering a question in a broadcast of radio Kommersant FM. “We are interested in Ukraine remaining territorially and politically integral,” he said.
“We wish to see Ukraine unified and prosperous,” Peskov said.
Russia is very much concerned with the spread of Russophobia and nationalistic attitudes in Ukraine, he added. Peskov noted that even religious leaders act as ultranationalists’ “messengers”, “which is absolutely outrageous”.
The presidential press secretary noted that cooperation between Russia and Ukraine continues despite all this.
