VLADIVOSTOK, November 15. /TASS/. Russia expects the Ukraine crisis to end and Moscow’s relations with western partners will normalize, President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with the German TV Channel ARD on Saturday.
“Of course, we expect the situation to change for the better. Of course, we expect the crisis in Ukraine to end. Of course, we want normal relations with all our partners, including in the United States and in Europe,” the Russian leader said.
Putin reiterated that the sanctions were harmful both for Russia and the global economy, first of all, for relations between Russia and Europe.
“In this case, this contradicts international law, which regulates relations in the sphere of the economy, the WTO principles and what we’ll try to agree at the G20 summit. This enters into direct conflict,” Putin said.
