Russian President Vladimir Putin is sure that relations between Russia and Ukraine will normalize. He announced this during a press conference, Ukrainian News Agency reports. "I hope and am sure that sooner or later we'll have a normalization of relations with Ukraine," he said when answering a question about the situation with construction of the Kerch Bridge in the Russia-occupied Crimea. The Kerch Bridge will be important for the commercial relations and humanitarian ties between Russia and Ukraine. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014. This November, the International Criminal Court (seated in The Hague, the Netherlands) decided to continue gathering evidence of Russia's involvement in the conflict in Donetsk and Luhansk Regions.
