"Taking into account hostile actions of the political leadership of Russia and generally accepted practice of international relations, we insist on immediate termination of diplomatic relations between Ukraine and Russia,” UDAR stresses. "Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognizing the independence of the so-called Crimean Republic and an order to enclose Crimea as a subject of Russian Federation. Russian State Duma supported the entry of Crimea to Russia. Such actions pursue the course of Russian leadership for aggression against Ukrainian state and encroachment on its sovereignty and territorial integrity. This is a blatant interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine," the party underlines.
UDAR points out that in response to calls from Ukraine and international community to find a diplomatic way of resolving the conflict, Russian president chose the path of further escalation of tensions and military threats. "This is unacceptable and now Ukraine's position should include termination of diplomatic relations with Russia," UDAR is convinced.
