MOSCOW, April 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on termination of the effect of Russian-Ukrainian treaties on the Russian Black Sea Fleet, the Kremlin press service reported on Wednesday.
“This federal law comes into force from the day of its official publication,” the document runs.
The law holds that the Russian-Ukrainian treaty on parameters of division of the Black Sea Fleet signed on May 28, 1997, the treaty on status and terms of deployment of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine signed on May 28, 1997, the treaty on mutual settlements related with division and stay of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine signed on May 28, 1997 and the so-called Kharkiv agreement on stay of the Russian Black Sea Fleet on the territory of Ukraine signed on April 21, 2010 are denounced.
