Klimkin comments on Russia's list of Friendship Treaty "violations"
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has commented on Russia's note sent to Ukraine with a list of "violations" of the Treaty on Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership.
"We have received a note from the Russian Foreign Ministry in response to our statement of intent on non-prolonging the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership with Russia, which we sent on September 21, 2018. As you can see, it did not take them long to give an answer: after almost six months and on 12 pages," Klimkin wrote on Facebook on March 12.
He stressed all 12 pages stipulated that only Ukraine had allegedly systematically violated the treaty.
"For example, the Association Agreement with the EU is, in their opinion, also a gross violation. Like everything we do to be more democratic, European and, after all, really independent. So, we are on the right track," the minister said.
