Chairman of the Federation Council of Russia Valentina Matviyenko said that she hopes to restore the inter-parliamentary “dialogue” with the new Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

“We are ready to hold a dialogue with the parliament, which has been trusted by the people, and we expect that such a dialogue is now possible, at least, on those issues where we can form a positive agenda,” Matviyenko said.

She also expressed the opinion that early elections to the Ukrainian parliament can not be called “quite in line with international democratic norms.”

Recall that in May Matviyenko has already said that Ukraine and Russia should begin the relationship “from a blank sheet.”
