According to Yasko, with Russia you need to talk only within the framework of international law. “If the debate Russia says is wrong and fake narratives, of course, we have to answer, join in dialogue, to convey their position. But this does not mean that we need to be friends with them and forget who is the aggressor,” — said the Deputy.
