Statement of the MFA of Ukraine on the DPRK ICBM launch

01 August 2017, 11:37

Ukraine condemns in the strongest terms the most recent and the second this month ICBM launch by the DPRK.

This launch is another Pyongyang’s blatant violation of international law and relevant UNSC resolutions concerning North Korean missile program.

Ukraine aligns itself with all nations advocating the necessity to apply additional sanctions in order to bring DPRK into line with the international legal framework.

Eight European Foreign Ministers: Four years on – but we will not forget illegally occupied Crimea | 17 March, 12:35

The Russian takeover comprised a series of equally illegal actions: from using disguised Russian elite troops to the hasty organisation – in breach of Ukrainian and international law – of an illegitimate “referendum”. President Putin initially claimed that those troops had no association with Russia, but then admitted that he had ordered the entire takeover in late February 2014. He later generously decorated Russian servicemen with medals for carrying out the occupation.
