Ukraine breaks pact of cooperation on internal security with Belarus

Kyiv, August 12.- Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers broke the cooperation agreement between its Interior Ministry and that of Belarus in a regulation dated August 9, confirmed today the Sudebno-Yuridicheskaya Gazeta newspaper.

“Due to the radical change in circumstances, the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers has ordered: the validity of the cooperation agreement between the Ministry of Interior of Ukraine and that of Belarus, concluded on March 6, 1992 in Chernihiv, to be revoked,” says the media document, the legal and dedicated to legal issues.

The signed agreement states that the internal organs of Kyiv and Minsk will assist each other in fighting crime, ensuring public order, enforcing court sentences and searching for the disappeared, as well as developing scientific links, technology and information, among other things.

The government of President Vladimir Zalensky instructed the Chancellery to notify the Belarusian side about the termination of the validity of the agreement in question from the date of receipt of the notification.

On the other hand, the Ukrainian Cabinet also announced the breach of agreements on industrial and technological-scientific cooperation between enterprises and organizations of military branches, signed on June 25, 2001 in Kyiv with Belarus.

Relations between Minsk and Kyiv deteriorated in 2020 when Zelenskyy did not attend the planned forum of the two countries’ regions in Belarus.

Ukraine is among Western countries that the Belarusian authorities accuse of interfering in their internal affairs and orchestrating the protests that began after the presidential election.

After the start of the Russian military operation on Ukrainian territory on February 24, Kyiv urged its western allies to impose sanctions on Moscow and Minsk to weaken both economies and force the Kremlin to end the offensive aimed at it, according to President Vladimir Putin, demilitarize and denazify Ukraine.
