It is necessary that Ukraine breaks the Friendship and Partnership Treaty with Russia. Olena Zerkal, the deputy foreign minister said this while on the air of Radio NV.

'We should define our position here by October this year, whether we will extend the duration of this document or not. As far as we can see, this treaty is ignored; so, given our current relations with Russia, we should be working on a new treaty that would settle the legal tools of settling disputes between the countries', Zerkal said.
