The Foreign Ministry will formally submit for consideration to President Petro Poroshenko a package of documents on the termination of the agreement.
Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin has announced his ministry has prepared a package of documents to initiate the procedure for severing the Treaty on Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership with the Russian Federation, which was signed in 1997.
“These documents and the entire package have already been drawn up. I can say about this now. This has always been our position, that’s why we’ve worked it out. In the coming days, we will introduce it formally”, said Klimkin. “I have always said that Russia first of all had violated everything in this treaty it could – from the preamble to all articles and secondly there is a legal and political side, of course, but there is also an emotional one. Well, what kind of friendship or cooperation are we talking about?” Klimkin noted.
