President Petro Poroshenko signed the law on termination of the Ukraine-Russia Friendship Treaty from April 1, 2019, reports the press office of the Presidential Administration. 

‘The non-extension of the treaty with Russia should be considered not as an episode but as a part of our strategy on the final break with the colonial past and reorientation towards Europe,’ the President stressed.
