Statement of the MFA of Ukraine on the escalation of the situation concerning the DPRK

11 August 2017, 10:28

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expresses its concern with regard to the aggressive statements and plans of the DPRK to launch ballistic missiles on targets in the area of the island of Guam.

In the view of the Ukrainian Side such Pyongyang’s actions increase the risk of military conflict in the region of East Asia and threaten international peace and security.    

In this regard the MFA of Ukraine called upon the official Pyongyang for strict implementation of the previously adopted UN Security Council resolutions including 2371 (2017).

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

Four years ago, on 18 March 2014, Russia took the final step to illegally occupy Crimea, a part of Ukraine’s sovereign territory that Russia had recognised as such in several international treaties. 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.
