“The way of a referendum of confidence in themselves will hold and realize that they’re not worth anything” – he said to journalists.

Earlier media reported that the bill on the reintegration of Donbass, which is discussed in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the alleged amendment of the severance of diplomatic relations with Russia. However, the head of Committee on security of the Ukrainian Parliament Serhiy Pashinsky said that the Council has no authority to break off relations with other countries, and such amendments to the bill have been made. Deputy Ivan Vinnik, which the media attributed the authorship of the amendment, has also denied this information.

According to Aksenova, the ringing in Kiev statements about the need of rupture of diplomatic relations with Russia will not benefit the relations between the two countries. “We wait, when there will be elections to the Ukrainian Parliament and the President.
