 Ukraine, in fact, has no diplomatic relations with Russia, - Klimkin

Ukraine does not actually maintain diplomatic relations with Russia, and existing contacts are reduced to the absolute minimum.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, Ukraine Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said this at a press conference on Friday.

"We actually have no diplomatic relations with Russia. They are at an absolute minimum only to protect our citizens. But we are looking for a solution and as soon as we find it, we will definitely apply it," said Klimkin.

He also mentioned consultations being underway with countries that could represent Ukraine interests in the protection of Ukrainian citizens in Russia.

"We are talking to some of our friends about the possibility that they represent [Ukraine], but I will not name the countries, because this is a delicate matter that requires lots of work," Klimkin said.

He also reminded that more than 2.5 million Ukrainian citizens are currently in Russia.

"We have 70 political prisoners. I mean both in Russia and in occupied Crimea," added Klimkin.
