MOSCOW, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hopes that reasonable forces in Ukraine will be able to unite the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Nebenzya said.
“I hope that reasonable forces in Ukraine will be able to realize the country should be united. It is divided on its own,” Nebenzya said at a session of the State Duma, lower house of Russia’s parliament, on Thursday.
He quoted director of the Institute of CIS Countries Konstantin Zatulin as saying “There are politicians who can and are ready to lead the West. There are politicians who can and are eady to lead the East. But there are no politicians who are capable of uniting the country.”
“This is the biggest problem of the country,” Nebenzya said.
Ukraine’s admission to NATO is impossible, Nebenzya continued.
The West realizes what this means for Russia, Nebenzya said at a session of the State Duma, lower house of Russia’s parliament, on Thursday.
“I believe that this will not happen. In my view, it is impossible,” the Russian high-ranking diplomat said.
A mechanism to settle the crisis in Ukraine with the participation of Russia and the West has not been created yet, Nebenzya added.
