MOSCOW, April 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry has sent a note to Ukrainian Embassy in the Russian capital of Moscow over termination of treaties on the Black Sea Fleet, the Russian top diplomatic agency stated on Thursday.
“Russian Foreign Ministry has sent a note to Ukrainian Embassy in Russia and stated about the federal law on termination of the effect of the treaties related to deployment of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine enacted on April 2, 2014,” the country’s Foreign Ministry said.
“Under Articles 61 and 62 of the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of International Treaties Russia has notified Ukraine on termination of the effect of the following international treaties: Russian-Ukrainian agreement on parameters of division of the Black Sea Fleet signed on May 28, 1997, bilateral agreement on status and terms of stay of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine signed on May 28, 1997, the agreement between the governments of Russia and Ukraine on mutual settlements related with division of the Black Sea Fleet and stay of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine signed on April 21, 2010,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“The termination of the effect of the above listed international treaties does not affect financial liabilities that were taken during the term of these treaties and subject to repayment and confirms that Russia is prepared to settle issues related with practical aftermath of closing their effect through talks with Ukraine,” the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.
The diplomatic note also confirmed that Russia was prepared to hand over military property of Ukrainian Armed Forces left in the Russian Republic of Crimea to Kiev.
