MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Moscow hopes that Ukraine’s new government will be made up of people ready to re-establish cooperation, particularly in energy, transport and humanitarian spheres, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department for CIS Countries said on Tuesday.

“We are preparing to resume dialogue on most important issues of bilateral cooperation,” Viktor Sorokin said at a meeting of the Federation Council commission for monitoring the situation in Ukraine.

“We hope that the government which will be formed will consist of professionals who know the real situation both in the economy and the social sphere and understand the importance of resolving all existing problems through dialogue with the Russian side. These include energy, transport, aviation and resumption of humanitarian and cultural ties.”

Preliminary results of Sunday's snap parliamentary elections to Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada indicated that none of political parties collected enough votes needed to form their own government, the diplomat said.

“It is likely that a coalition will be created,” he said. “The process will probably be difficult and time-consuming, but this is a constitutional obligation to form a majority government. We hope that Ukraine will finally have a government which is not engaged in an internal struggle but deals with real problems of the state.”

With most of the vote counted late Monday, political movements headed by President Pyotr Poroshenko, Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk and a new alliance of young activists had more than 50% of the vote locked up for their expected coalition. Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, whose Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party placed sixth with nearly 6%, has also promised to join forces with the Europe-leaning leaders.
