In Parliament said plans for the Treaty of friendship with Russia

В Раде уточнили планы по договору о дружбе с РФ

Kiev intends not to renew the Treaty of friendship with Russia, although this happens automatically

A Treaty of friendship with Russia will not be denounced, not explained Gerashchenko.

Ukraine is not going to break the Treaty of friendship with Russia, and not to prolong its action. On Monday, August 3, at the meeting of the conciliatory Council of the Verkhovna Rada the first Vice-speaker of the Parliament Irina Gerashchenko, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

“We are not talking about any denunciations, because we are going to demand from Russia in all international courts to answer… because they violated the agreement,” – said Gerashchenko

She emphasized that denunciation and deprolongation are not identical. “We are talking exclusively about deprolongation” she concluded

As said Gerashchenko in Facebook, Russia broke the Treaty of friendship four years ago, and Ukraine is its international claims will build on the violation of Moscow’s key articles of the Treaty – concerning respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, about the firmness of the Ukrainian border.

However, according to her, today the situation is this: in the autumn of the Agreement on friendship with Russia will require renewal, and as a rule, it happens automatically, but this may not be considered.

“Neither of which gap, the denunciation of not talking, because in 2014, where the act of the Treaty, the Russian Federation grossly violated,” – said Gerashchenko, adding that to “continue the Contract really is impossible.”

Last week, President Petro Poroshenko instructed the foreign Ministry to prepare documents for the denunciation of the Treaty of friendship with Russia.

Later, the foreign Ministry said that Kiev until the end of September will inform Russia about the termination of the contract.

If Ukraine does not notify the Russian side about cancellation of the contract, from 1 April 2019 it will last another 10 years.

As you know, a friendship Treaty with Russia was signed on 31 may 1997 for a period of 10 years (with the subsequent automatic prolongation of the document, if the parties do not oppose). It entered into force on 1 April 1999.
