Foreign Ministry: Period of brotherhood has passed for Ukraine and Russia

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Ohryzko states that regarding the relations with Russia, “the period of brotherhood and unity of Slavic peoples” passed long time ago.

“It is time to get rid of stereotypes and clichés of brotherhood, historical unity and other things. We are two sovereign states and must build our relations on the basis of international law,” he told a press conference in Kyiv.

In addition, the minister noted that “when they speak about Slavic unity, a question arises: how many Slavic peoples are the members of NATO, and how many are not?”
