TEL AVIV, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine cannot live without Russia, Ukrainian presidential candidate Vadim Rabynovych said in an interview to Israeli television broadcast on Monday.
“Ukraine cannot live without economic contacts, therefore it is obvious that it is necessary to sit down and negotiate further,” Rabynovych stressed.
Rabynovych noted that Crimea was lost for Ukraine. “I believe that today, after such events have taken place, Crimea is lost for Ukraine,” he said. “At present, all the candidates promise, 'We will return Crimea.' I believe that a candidate who says 'we will return Crimea' should be at once removed from the election race, because he lies."
