The Law of Ukraine on the breach of the 1997 Ukraine-Russia Friendship Treaty took effect on December 12. The parliamentary outlet published the document, which means it is effective now.

In early September 2018, the National Security and Defense Council supported President Poroshenko’s proposal on the non-renewal of the treaty with the Russian Federation for the next 10 years. On September 19, the decree on the enactment of the decision came into force.

On September 21, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine sent a note to Russia on the non-renewal of the Treaty of friendship, cooperation, and partnership. 

November 10, President Petro Poroshenko signed a law on the termination of Russian-Ukrainian Friendship Treaty from April 1, 2019.

Earlier, Ukraine's service for foreign intelligence began the official procedure of withdrawal from the CIS Agreement on Cooperation of Intelligence and Security Services. The press office of the Ukrainian authority reported that on Tuesday evening.

The original agreement was signed in 1992.

'The part of Ukrainian intelligence in this agreement, standing next to the Russian special services is an absurd thing, taking into account the armed aggression of the Russian aggression against Ukraine, which lasts for more than four years now', the Ukrainian authority states.
