‘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.
At the same time, there is no information on the signing of the document on the website of the Ukrainian Parliament.
As it is known, the Head of the Parliament Andriy Parubiy has already signed the document. The law will enter into force the day after it is officially published.
In early September 2018, the National Security and Defense Council supported 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.
