Aryev explained that in his opinion the presence of the Ambassador should indicate the normal and good-neighbourly relations between States. However, in the “occupation of the territories” such relations can not be, said the representative of the Ukrainian Parliament.
He said that in the current situation Russia in the Ukraine may provide temporarily d’affaires, not the Ambassador. Recall that currently the chargé d’affaires of Russia in Ukraine in the absence of the Ambassador is Sergei Toropov.
Note that the issue of consent to the appointment of the new Ambassador of Russia in Kiev is the responsibility of the Minister of foreign Affairs and the President of Ukraine. Official statement from Poroshenko on this issue has not yet been reported.
