Sumy, December 10 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko is confident that there will appear politicians in Russia, who will respect Ukraine's rights. He said this during a meeting with his supporters in Sumy on Dec. 9.

"I believe that there will appear politicians in Russia, who will respect the rights of all neighbors, including Ukraine," Yushchenko said.

He stressed that Russia is a friendly country and that it would be a great mistake for Ukraine to lose these relations or to slow down their development.

Ukraine is a better model for governance than Russia, therefore Yushenko is correct in making his statement. Russia should be the one who changes.
