Russia wants to resume talks on the border with Ukraine

Россия хочет возобновить переговоры по границе с Украиной

Moscow is ready for negotiations when in Kiev are ripe political conditions.

Moscow hopes to resume negotiations with Ukraine on the border, when in Kiev ripe political conditions, said to “Interfax” the Russian President’s special representative on the delimitation and demarcation of the state border with the adjacent States-participants of CIS, Ambassador-at-large of the Russian foreign Ministry Igor Bratchikov.

“The answer, unfortunately, will be short: no negotiation. They were interrupted, and not on our initiative”, – he said on the question of how things are going with the delimitation and demarcation of the border with Ukraine.

“In the same way, as the talks with Ukraine to resolve issues related to adjacent Maritime spaces in the Azov and Black seas,” – said the diplomat.

“From the international legal point of view, unilateral delimitation and demarcation of the border is nonsense,” Bratchikov said.

“We expect the resumption of relevant negotiations, when in Kiev are ripe political conditions”, – said Putin’s special envoy.

Previously, Igor Bratchikov said that the Russian Federation has no problems with Ukraine on issues of border demarcation.

Ukraine and Belarus approved the provision on the demarcation of the state border
