KIEV, December 2. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) said on Tuesday lawmakers from the Svoboda (Freedom) party factions had submitted a bill denouncing Ukraine’s treaty of friendship, cooperation and partnership with Russia.
Apart from that, another bill was laid before the parliament providing for “mirror property sanctions against Russia.” The texts of the two bills have not yet been posted on the Rada’s website.
The Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between Ukraine and Russia was signed in Kiev on May 31, 1997. It superseded the previous such treaty of 1990 between Russia and Ukraine, both being republics of the former Soviet Union at the moment. In these treaties, the parties undertook to build relations “on the basis of mutual respect and trust, strategic partnership and cooperation.” Apart from that, Kiev and Moscow undertook not to sign with third parties any treaties aimed against the other party and not to let their territories be used to the prejudice of the other party’s security.
