With the termination of the Treaty of friendship Ukraine risks losing a powerful argument in international courts from Russia. This opinion was expressed by a number of political experts.
in Particular, political analyst Vasily Makarov said: “If we have no benefit, so we have to make some adjustments to the relationship, but the adjustment of relations and breaking are two different moments.”
“It would be difficult to explain to our Western partners that we are constantly with the implementation of the peace plan for the Donbas, execution of Minsk agreements, but we do terminate the Treaty with Russia on friendship. That is, it looks quite ambivalent,” adds the analyst Kirill Molchanov.
Experts add: this step is also a reason for Russia to say so “officially” not to recognize the state border of Ukraine.
“For the Ukrainian economy, the country’s position in the international arena, the interests of millions of citizens the decision will have disastrous consequences. Such a step would not only negate all the efforts aimed at finding a compromise and a peaceful settlement of the conflict in the Donbass, but will blow the main for Ukraine the question of restoring peace in the East”, – said the leader of the NGO “Ukrainian choice – the right of the people” Viktor Medvedchuk.
This issue remains controversial in expert circles, because a clear answer – whether or not, few people can give. The only thing they say confidence is the symbolic meaning of such statements of politicians on the eve of the race.
