Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of RF to Ukraine Victor Chernomyrdin is confident that the open letter of President of Russia Vladimir Putin to President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko, as well as the statement of the Foreign Ministry of Russia concerning the plight of Russian cultural insitutions in Ukraine, will not influence the mutual relations between business-structures of the two countries.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this today in Kyiv at a session of the Russian Strategic Investors Council in Ukraine.

According to the words of Victor Chernomyrdin, “it will influence people in Ukraine, for who the Russian language is native, and it will not influence the interstate and business relations – we worked, work and will work”.
