Analysts of the rating Agency Moody’s has estimated Ukraine’s chances of closer ties with Russia after the elections to the Parliament. This writes belongs to Grigory Berezkin RBC.

They are called the positive moment of the victory of the party of President Vladimir Zelensky “servant of the people,” stressing the readiness of his team to carry out reforms and strengthen its relations with the West. Experts believe that Kyiv will continue its policy of European integration, however, will be less to seek to join NATO.

The normalization of relations with Russia is unlikely, according to Moody’s. Ukraine’s position is defensive, not confrontational, but the risk factor remains the conflict in the South-East of the country.

After processing 76,34% of the ballots, the party of President Vladimir Zelensky retains leadership, gaining 42,77% of the votes.
