KIEV, April 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has reassured of his commitment to have “good relations” with Moscow but placed responsibility for his country’s problems on Russia.
“I want my country to have good relations, including with Russia, but our Russian partners do not let us do this,” he told the television programme Dialogue with the East on Ukraine’s First National TV Channel on Friday.
He said Ukrainians were worried over both the domestic and foreign political situation. “It is difficult to calm down people when Russian troops are deployed along the border with Ukraine, and our Ukrainian-made products are supposed to freely cross the border and be sold in Russia but we have no possibility to do that,” he said.
