'No illusions', but there are 'chances' – Russian PM on Ukraine elections and bilateral relations

Ukrainian president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky won’t change his campaign rhetoric about Russia, but there is a real chance for Moscow-Kiev ties to improve after the election, according to Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev.

“There is no doubt the new head of state will remain committed to his campaign rhetoric about Russia, repeating the same ideological cliches… I have no illusion about that,” Medvedev wrote on his VK social media page.

He expressed hope, however, that there is “a chance to improve cooperation” between Russia and Ukraine, if the new leadership uses “common sense” and a “pragmatic and responsible approach” that takes into account political realities in Ukraine.
