On April 21, 2010 in Kharkiv, the Presidents of Russia and Ukraine, Dmitry Medvedev and Viktor Yanukovych signed a historical agreement.

In June 2010 Medvedev and Yanukovych signed a law on ratification of the agreement to extend the Black Sea Fleet’s presence in the Crimea after 2017 for another 25 years.
