Russia, Ukraine have small window of opportunities in their relations, says diplomat

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said he believes in the possibility of progress, but "we must work to implement it"

PRAGUE, June 13. /TASS/. It is yet possible to normalize the Russian-Ukrainian relations, so, it is important not to miss a chance to do that, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Thursday.

"As for our bilateral relations with Ukraine, President [of Russia Vladimir] Putin spoke about them clearly yesterday," he said. "There is a small window of opportunities. What matters most is that this window be used to send constructive signals rather than what everyone has grown sick and tired of - hackneyed Russophobic commentaries and oratory."

"I believe such a possibility do exist but we must work to implement it," he stressed.
