MOSCOW, June 2. /TASS/. Speaker of Russia’s State Duma Sergey Naryshkin has pointed to the importance of the Kosice process aimed at defusing the Ukrainian crisis.
"I would like to make a special mention of your initiative and the initiative of our German colleagues on launching the Kosice process," the Duma speaker told Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico. He recalled that a group of Russian lawmakers had taken part in that meeting.
"I know that the discussion may have been tough, but I think it was very important, since it is aimed at finding approaches to resolving the Ukrainian crisis," Naryshkin said.
In March, the Slovak city of Kosice hosted the conference titled "Pathways to Peace." It was attended by representatives of civil society and scientific and political circles from Russia, Ukraine, Germany and Slovakia. The event was held under the auspices of Slolvakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico at the initiative of the German-Russian and German-Ukrainian forums with the support of the ASA Institute (Slovakia) and was dedicated to overcoming the Ukrainian crisis.
