KIEV, December 25. /TASS/. Lawmakers of the city legislature in southeast Ukrainian city of Zaporizhia have refused to recognize Russia as an ‘aggressor state,’ local media reported on Friday.
The issue was not even put on the agenda. "At the first session of the city council today, Zaporizhia’s lawmakers refused to recognize Russia as an aggressor state and to recognize the self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk and Luhansk republics as terrorist organizations," Z-city, a local media outlet, has said.
Earlier, on December 16, the Odessa city council, a legislature, once again refused to consider the issue of recognizing Russia as an ‘aggressor state.’
There have been attempts to put this issue on the agenda of the Kharkov city council, which have failed.
On January 27, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, or national parliament, passed a resolution calling on the United Nations to recognize Russia as an ‘aggressor state.’
