YALTA, August 17. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he is confident that all difficulties in Ukraine will be over. At the same time, he called humiliating for the people of Ukraine the practice of the external administration in this country that has been de facto imposed by Kiev.
"I am sure that despite all the difficulties of the current period of time, the situation in Ukraine will be rectified too, Ukraine will be developing positively and will depart from this disgraceful practice that we see today, namely, placing a whole huge European country under the external administration with key positions in the government and in the regions held by foreign nationals," he said. "I think that all this is humiliating for the Ukrainian people," Putin noted.
The Russian president expressed confidence that this practice was yet to be assessed by the Ukrainian people. "Ukraine will recover and will be developing positively and will build its future along with Russia," he said.
