MOSCOW, March 1 (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Saturday that the upper house of parliament's vote to allow President Vladimir Putin to use troops in Ukraine does not mean it will happen quickly.

"The consent which the president received does not mean literally that this right will be used quickly," said Karasin, whom Putin earlier on Saturday put in charge of the proposal.
