Kyiv City Council decided to break brotherhood with six Russian cities and regions. 97 deputies supported this decision.
“Today deputies of the Kyiv City Council decided to break brotherhood with the following cities and regions in the Russian Federation: Moscow, Volgograd, Saint Petersburg, Ulan-Ude, the Republic of Komi and Makhachkala”, - stated press service of Kyiv City Council.
The deputies ordered executive bodies of the Kyiv City Council to take organizational and legal measures to terminate bilateral agreements, deals, memorandums, protocols and other documents signed with the abovementioned cities and regions of the Russian Federation.
Deputy Head of Kyiv City Council Volodymyr Prokopiv pointed out that the last cooperation program with Moscow finished in 2013. There has been no cooperation with other Russian cities since then as a result of tense political situation.
“For this reason these documents have rather symbolic than legal status”, - Prokopiv explained.
