NEW YORK, February 21. /TASS/. Russia is interested in having friendly relations with Ukraine and it will be trying to mend them, Czech President Milos Zeman told Bloomberg in an interview.
"The situation in eastern Ukraine won’t become a ‘frozen conflict.’ For Russia, peace is far more advantageous than war, even if it were a low-intensity conflict," he said.
He believes that Crimea’s reunification with Russia had occurred under different circumstances than the fighting in Donbass and should not be considered in one context.
"We can understand Russia’s interest in Crimea, even if we don’t agree with it," Zeman said.
The Czech president, a strong critic of anti-Russian sanctions, believes that stabilization in Ukraine would be fully in line with Russia’s economic interests.
"Peace is the only solution for the Russian economy," he said.
