    Moscow is ready to renew a Russia-US consultation channel on Ukraine but has not yet received a specific response from Washington, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Lavrov told Belarusian media in an interview that Moscow discussed its readiness to renew specifically designated bilateral dialogue on Ukraine during his and US State Secretary Rex Tillerson's mutual visits last spring.

    "We thought that it would be useful, but so far have not received any specific responses to our interest," he said.

    The Russian diplomat noted that the US had similar bilateral channels with Germany, France and Ukraine itself.
