Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said that Ukraine and Russia have already passed the peak of the crisis in their relations.
"I think we have passed the peak of the crisis in the relations between Ukraine and Russia. My hope is that the words Russian Prime Minister Medvedev said to me that a decision to send troops has not been adopted are true," he said speaking at a meeting with the European Business Association in Kyiv on Monday.
