The Ministry tweeted that the decision made by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the recognition of the self-proclaimed Donetsk/Luhansk is violation of “Ukraine territorial integrity, international law, the Minsk agreements, undermining a diplomatic solution. “
“We stand firm in support of Ukraine’s sovereignty,” the ministry says.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenković also joined in the condemnation of the recognition of the two separatist regions.
Many western countries and international organisations on Monday strongly slammed Russia’s move to recognise the separatist regions and accused Putin of violating international law and Ukraine’s sovereignty.
