KIEV, March 01, 16:12 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine and Russia should have a real dialogue on the situation in Crimea, not to exchange notes, acting foreign minister, Andrei Deshchitsa, said on Saturday.
“We have been sending to Russia two-three notes a day. Unfortunately, now we have this ‘diplomacy of notes’, and I only hope it does not develop into a ‘war of notes’. We want to have a dialogue with Russia, let us stop sending papers to each other. I speak Russia, I can communicate,” he said.
The acting foreign minister said the Ukrainian foreign relations authority planned to publish a statement, which would disclaim the information about buildings seized in Crimea.
