Mar 20, 2017 @ 9:24

Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that his country has no prejudice against Ukrainians and described Ukraine as very “important.”

On Sunday, he was asked when Ukraine could recognize Crimea as part of Russia.

“From the point of view of our current reality, the position and status of Crimea as a region of the Russian Federation is not that important, as it is unlikely to change whenever,” Peskov replied during an interview with RBC television channel, according to a TASS Russian News Agency article published online on March 19.

“Of course, Ukraine is extremely important to us both in the inter-state relations, and in the economic and in humanitarian aspects. It cannot be overestimated, it is important to now, despite all the costs of the situation, in which we found ourselves together with Ukraine. Though Russia has never ever had any prejudices against the Ukrainians, I hope they will never be,” Peskov said.

Crimea, a peninsula in southern Ukraine, was annexed by Russia in 2014.
