Russia's new Ambassador to Estonia Nikolai Uspenski is not promising any changes in the two countries' relationship.
"Relations between countries are not a matter of some person's wishes or somebody's personal train of thought, but an objective reality shaped by tough objective circumstances," Uspenski said in an interview with the Postimees daily. "Unless we cope with those circumstances nothing new can be invented."
There are many problems in the bilateral relations that need to be resolved.
"I am convinced that we shall first find a solution for the problems on the table and then we can look in which direction to proceed," he said.
