MOSCOW, September 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia welcomes the fact that the question of the Black Sea Fleet’s presence in Ukrainian territory is now completely depoliticized, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Ukrainian counterpart Konstantin Grishchenko on Monday.
"We have discussed in detail the issues related to the presence of the Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine,” Lavrov said. “We discussed how to move forward to improve the legal base. We are satisfied that the subject is now completely depoliticized, that the work of the relevant subcommission is being held actively, specifically and professionally," said the Russian minister.
He said that "a number of documents has been agreed and will be presented for signature at a regular meeting of the interstate commission."
