The Ukrainian PM Vladmir Groysman claimed that Russia had made "a historical mistake" by committing "aggression" against Ukraine.
From his point of view "the biggest mistake of Russia is what it did in Ukraine. It's a historical strategic mistake."
As the PM said, "Russia should determine by itself how it would like Ukraine to build relations with it". The Ukrainians have already proved they would not surrender the country, he pointed out.
Groysman stated that relations may be built "with any neighbour, unless he is an aggressor or killer. But if your neighbour is a killer, what is it all about?" He also noted that the Minister of Energy and Coal Mining assured him that Ukraine buys gas and coal no more in Russia.
