Kovacevski Condemns Russia’s Decision over Donetsk and Lugansk

PM Dimitar Kovacevski has condemned Russia’s decision regarding Donetsk and Lugansk. “I condemn Russia’s decision for recognition of Donetsk and Lugansk as self-proclaimed “People’s Republics”,” he tweeted on Tuesday. As he added, the act is a direct attack on Ukraine’s territorial sovereignty and integrity, as well as a violation of Minsk agreements and UN Council decisions from 2015. “Along with NATO Allies, we call on resolving conflicts through a diplomatic path,” the PM pointed out. The same day, President Pendarovski reacted on Twitter, too. “Rules-based international order is the foundation of international relations, whose principles must be respected. Blatant violation of international law is a threat to the civilisation,” he wrote, expressing staunch support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.
