"Despite Russians wag their tongues, Ukraine will keep on servicing Russian missiles..."

Defense Minister of Ukraine Yuri Yekhanurov calls on the Russian Federation to refuse double standards in the sphere of collaboration with NATO.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, the Minister claimed this today at the presentation of the English-language variant of “White Book” to military attaché, accredited in Ukraine.

Yuri Yekhanurov stressed that the development of the relations between Ukraine and RF must not hamper Ukraine’s collaboration with NATO.

“We would like that our Russian colleagues refuse the policy of double standards”, Yuri Yekhanurov said, adding that Russia is collaborating with the Alliance much more intensely than Ukraine.

At the same time, the Defense Minister stressed that “despite some Russians allow themselves wagging their tongues”, Ukraine will keep on servicing Russian missiles, produced in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk.
