    Dialogue on Ukraine with US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland was open-minded and fruitful, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Nuland visited Moscow on May 17-18 to discuss the implementation of the Minsk peace agreements on Ukraine, as well as US-Russian bilateral relations.

    "We met to exchange opinions on obstacles in the implementation of the Minsk agreements…I believe this exchange was fruitful, open-minded and rather direct."

    "We discussed in detail the issues related to the work of the Contact Group and four subgroups, which have been set up to advance all aspects of the Ukrainian reconciliation," Karasin said.

    The Russian diplomat expressed hope that the sides would continue this dialogue "whenever it's necessary."
