The corresponding decision was made at a meeting of the Ukrainian government on Wednesday.
This document was signed on July 12, 2012 in Yalta.
It is noted that the implementation of the decision will create «additional legal and political grounds for protecting the national interests of Ukraine in the conditions of armed aggression of the Russian Federation».
On April 1, 2019, at the initiative of Ukraine, the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between Russia and Ukraine also ceased to be in force. It was noted that, having carried out armed aggression against Ukraine, the Russian Federation violated the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership. This agreement was signed on May 31, 1997 in Kiev for a period of 10 years (with the subsequent automatic extension of the document, if the parties do not oppose it). It enshrined the principle of strategic partnership, recognition of the inviolability of existing borders, respect for territorial integrity and mutual obligations not to use their territory to the detriment of each other’s security.
