SHANGHAI, May 21./ITAR-TASS/. It will be difficult for Russia to build relations with those who will come to power in Ukraine amid growing tension in the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters on Wednesday.
“It will be very difficult for us to build relations with people who are coming to power amid a continuing punitive operation in south-eastern Ukraine and are hampering work of press,” the Russian leader stated.
He noted that Kiev acted more and more aggressively towards the press. “From the point of view of legitimacy, fairness of results (elections) this will certainly evoke more and more questions,” Putin said.
“I pin high hopes on our partners in Europe and the United States to hear and understand finally what is happening,” the Russian president noted.
