    Ukraine strongly condemns and doesn't recognize the Kremlin's Decree on recognition of so-called documents issued on the territories of certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine.

    De-facto, the Kremlin's Decree constitutes recognition of the Russia-controlled illegal authoroties on the occupied Ukrainian territories of Donbas.

    The Russian side has yet again violated Ukraine's state sovereignty and territorial integrity, Russia's international commitments, as well as the core idea and principles of the Minsk agreements.

    We call on our international partners to step up the pressure on Russia so that it unequivocally implements the Minsk agreements and returns to the international legal framework.
