KIEV, February 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine calls on signatories to the Budapest Memorandum “to guarantee Ukraine’s territorial integrity and unity,” a candidate for premiership Arseniy Yatsenyuk told a parliamentary session on Thursday.
Signatories to the memorandum, including Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom “have taken responsibility to ensure guarantees for avoiding military conflicts, and that no side will interfere into Ukraine’s internal affairs,” he said.
Ukraine and Russia should build new relations, Yatsenyuk stressed.
“Russians, we are friends and partners with you,” he told a parliamentary session. “We should come together.”
Yatsenyuk called on Russia not “to support separatists” and Viktor Yanukovych. “We want Ukraine to be a reliable partner, who wishes Russia good. We want Russia to be a similar partner to Ukraine,” he said.
“We want to see our bilateral and multilateral agreements fulfilled,” Yatsenyuk said.
