“I think Kyiv and Moscow have good prospects for the development of
their relations, and we’re mutually interested in each other’s
cooperation,” he said in an exclusive interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
He said that Kyiv and Moscow have many things in common.
“When I talk to my Moscow colleagues I have a feeling that we have a
carbon copy of everything: they have the issue of retaining the high
streets of the city on the agenda, and we have it; we have a transport
problem, kiosks and subway construction, and they have them. Everything
is so similar, but it couldn’t be any other way: the concepts and
visions of city development in the Soviet Union were the same, including
for [the development] of capitals,” Popov said.
