Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council approved the initiative of President Petro Poroshenko, who offered to discontinue the Treaty on Friendship, Partnership and Cooperation with the Russian Federation for ten years-long period. The authority's press service reported that on Thursday evening. 

Earlier on Thursday, the head of the state said that the Ukrainian side would send Russia the respective note in the near future.

Previously, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said that the documents are ready and they are soon to be handed over for consideration. 

The Ukraine-Russia Friendship Treaty of 1998 fixed the principle of strategic partnership, the recognition of the inviolability of existing borders, respect for territorial integrity and mutual commitment not to use its territory to harm the security of each other. The treaty automatically renews on each 10th anniversary of its signing, unless one party advises the other of its intention to end the treaty.
