The President of Ukraine said about the “element of recognition” to the separatists by Moscow.
Russia’s recognition of the documents of the “DNR” and “LNR” requires the enforcement of international sanctions. This was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with EU Commissioner for humanitarian aid and crisis management Stylianides Christ.
“We are now seeing repeated violations of the Minsk agreements. We not only see violations of the cease-fire, but a completely cynical decision on the recognition of fake documents, the fake republics”, – said the head of state.
Poroshenko noted that “from the point of view of international law is already an element of recognition of these illegal groups and, de facto, refusal of the Minsk process, because these actions are incompatible with the implementation of the Minsk agreements”.
“We believe that this is a very disturbing phenomenon, and it requires action until the strengthening of sanctions”, – concluded the Ukrainian President.
In turn, the European Commissioner Stylianides said that “the EU fully supports Ukraine and is making significant diplomatic efforts aimed at the full implementation by Russia of the Minsk agreements, which are based on absolute respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine”.
