SIMFEROPOL, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Relations between Crimea and Ukraine will resume some day, Head of the Crimean State Council Vladimir Konstantinov told journalists on Thursday.
“These relations will certainly normalize sooner or later,” he said. “Life goes on. We have business and economy. We have high season ahead. A rich harvest has been gathered and this will be a great tragedy for them if they fail to get here.”
“We have more mutual interests than differences,” Konstantinov said. “Politics is quite a different thing. Of course, it is difficult to hope for any constructive dialogue until Ukraine has an adequate government.”
“Today, many experts believe that they are just helping us, doing everything possible to make us more convinced than before, of the necessity of the reunification,” he said.
“But I am absolutely sure that our relations will start normalizing eventually,” he said, adding that there should be no negative attitude towards people of Ukraine.
