Russia said Tuesday it is looking forward to working with Ukraine's president and new government following the country's parliamentary elections Sunday, RIA Novosty reported.
"In seeking to build a system of inter-state relations based on principles of equality, friendship, pragmatism, and mutually beneficial cooperation, Russia looks forward to an intensive dialogue with the Ukrainian president, new Cabinet and new Verkhovna Rada," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The Foreign Ministry said the parliamentary poll had been monitored by Russian and international observers, who agreed that the election was valid, although they described the process as an acute political struggle and noted certain violations.
The Foreign Ministry said Ukrainians had made a conscious choice and shown a high level of political interest.
