Russia will recognize any choice of the Ukrainian people, Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov said in an interview with the Russian newspaper "Izvestia"

"Russia will recognize any choice of the Ukrainians, but it has a right to respond to changes in the policy of Kyiv through its national interests," he said.

According to the ambassador, he doubted that the results may affect the gas negotiations between two countries.

According to him, Russia and Ukraine are holding the economic and social reforms and modernizing the political and state institutions now.

Zurabov expressed hope that the pragmatism of Ukrainian politicians, regardless of a political force they belong to, is an insurance policy against spontaneous rash actions.

Russia is the largest trade and economic partner of Ukraine that can significantly help to overcome the economic problems faced by Kyiv within the unfavorable situation in the world economy, he said.
