#Commentary of Vladislav Berdichevsky on Ukraine’s intentions to denounce Treaty of Friendship with Russia
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has prepared several options for both suspension and denunciation of the Treaty of Friendship, cooperation and partnership with the Russian Federation. Currently, Ukraine believes that the CIS is a Soviet model that has exhausted itself.
Logically, the cancellation of agreements on cooperation and partnership with Russia cancels articles on mutual recognition of territorial integrity.
And besides, Ukraine is a state with weak signs of statehood and independence. This is confirmed by the fact of the Crimea’s reunification with Russia and the declaration of independence of the DPR and LPR. The situation, when the Ukrainian government is led by the American ambassador and the IMF, there is lawlessness in the judicial and law enforcement system, accelerating economic degradation and much more, just complements to the picture.
Our guidelines have long been set: integration with Russia in all spheres. Donbass have always had, has and will have scientific potential and labor force for this purpose.
A stele, which is located on Lenin Square in Donetsk, has words of a man, who united Donetsk-Krivorozh Republic with the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, on it: “Donbass is not just a random region, but it is one without which socialist construction will be just a simple, good wish…”.
The Donetsk People’s Republic is a socially oriented state. And since the people of Donbass have not been associated with Ukraine for a long time, it means that signing or denunciation of any agreements, which were concluded earlier with our participation, is a Kiev’s scheme, which we do not accept.
