The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine announced the severance of diplomatic relations with North Korea. This is a response to the country’s recognition of the independence of the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemns Decision of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to recognize the so-called “state” of the temporarily occupied territories in the Donetsk and Luhansk states – Read the statement on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

We perceive this decision as An attempt to undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine On the part of Pyongyang, a clear violation of the Constitution of Ukraine, the Statute of the United Nations and the main principles of international law. The North Korean regime’s recognition of the “self” of the Russian occupation regimes in the Donetsk and Luhansk states is invalid and will not have legal consequences and will not change the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine. In response to this act of aggression, Ukraine announced the severance of diplomatic relations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Political and economic contacts with the DPRK were not carried out due to international sanctions imposed on the country – We read the statement.

Russia’s appeal to the DPRK to support the legitimacy of its forcible seizure of Ukrainian territory says more about Moscow’s poison than Pyongyang’s. Russia has no more allies in the world, except for the countries that depend on it financially and politically, and the level of isolation of the Russian Federation will soon reach that of the DPRK. Ukraine It will continue to respond with the greatest possible force to violations of its sovereignty and territorial integrity – Confirmed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba.
