Exit of Ukraine from the treaty of friendship with Russia — only official ascertaining of his death? Georgy Bovt's comment


Against the background of the fact that Russia was the largest investor of Ukraine in the first half of the 2018th Poroshenko Georgy Bovt has charged to prepare documents for a rupture of the Treaty of friendship, cooperation and partnership. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS Russia became the largest investor of Ukraine in the first half of 2018. During this time the share of the Russian investments into the Ukrainian economy has made 34,6%. It is said in the report published on the website of Public service of statistics of Ukraine. According to the provided data, all from January till June to Ukraine 1,3 billion dollars, from them 436 million dollars from Russia have arrived. On the second place there was Cyprus which invested 200 million dollars. The three of the largest investors was closed by the Netherlands.

On this background the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has charged to prepare documents for a rupture of the Treaty of friendship, cooperation and partnership with Russia. It has been signed in May, 1997 by presidents Boris Yeltsin and Leonid Kuchma. What will be now? About it in Georgy Bovt's comment. Already very few people remember, a debate about ratification of this contract in the Russian Duma how was sharp. Oppositional fractions and also the Mayor of Moscow Yury Luzhkov of that time mainly opposed article which recognized territorial integrity of Ukraine, without stipulating the special status of Sevastopol and also at least disputable ownership of the Crimea.

Many of the problems designated then have had an effect in 2014, but at the time of signing Russia hoped that it thereby will geopolitical attach to itself Ukraine.

In general, if to get a grasp of 41 articles of the document, it leaves an impression declarative. Since spring of 2014 in Ukraine attacks to the contract and requirements to denounce him didn't stop. However Kiev didn't go on this step and now will use the provision of the contract providing the notice for half a year of intention him not to prolong then in the spring of the next year it will become invalid. In the context of a present political situation in Ukraine options at which this contract will remain in force aren't visible yet. For Poroshenko another action on a rupture of the remained communications with Russia is necessary at least in the context of his coming campaign for re-election by the president. Before recent time article about recognition of territorial integrity of Ukraine was the main argument of saving the contract from the Ukrainian side just. There were offers to have legal proceedings with Russia in the International Court of Justice, appealing to this document. However it has become clear that prospects of such legal claim are close to zero: and therefore that Russia would hardly recognize jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice in this question, besides, in the contract it is accurately told that all controversial issues are resolved by bilateral negotiations. Now, many politicians in Ukraine believe, will appear, the nakena
