Response of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the recognition of "independence" of Donetsk and Luhansk by the Russian Federation

Slovenia strongly condemns the decision by President Putin to recognise Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine as independent entities. These hostile measures are a flagrant violation of international law and obligations contained in the Minsk agreements, and will not remain without consequences.

Slovenia reiterates its unwavering support for the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and commends Ukrainian Government’s leadership in the face of this aggression, entirely and unilaterally escalated by Russia.
