MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said the proposal of members of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada to break diplomatic relations with Russia is another "initiative bordering on insanity." "Unfortunately, various initiatives bordering on insanity are currently not uncommon in Kiev," he told reporters on Thursday.

When asked to comment on the Kremlin’s attitude to this move, Peskov said it was necessary to wait for the results of the consideration of this issue by the Ukrainian parliament.

On March 30, the Verkhovna Rada Foreign Affairs Committee decided to support the resolution on terminating diplomatic relations with the Russian Federation.

According to the Ukrainian legislation, the committee’s decisions are advisory and non-binding.

The draft resolution on terminating diplomatic relations with Russia was submitted to Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada on March 15. It was authored by members of the Radical Party Oksana Korchinskaya and Yuri Shukhevych as well as Vladimir Parasyuk who ripped of Russia’s flag from the building of the Russian Consulate General in Lvov on March 9.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin earlier spoke out against this move. According to him, the severance of diplomatic relations with Russia will lead to the collapse of the existing negotiation format and jeopardize the Minsk agreements.
