After everything that has happened during these four years, the name of this treaty [the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation between Russia and Ukraine] seems quite cynical […]. You [Ukraine] broke everything. … You called us [Russia] the aggressor. You are exterminating Russian people. Most importantly there are charters in this treaty that talk about the military component. Including the charter saying that neither we [Russia] or you [Ukraine] can conclude any contract that can harm us. Nevertheless, today you let formally the foreign armed forces into your territory.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation. As for the “foreign armed forces”, Ukraine has never let them at its territory. It just has invited 218 foreign military instructors to help training Ukrainian soldiers. Ukraine also has never conducted a policy of “destroying Russian people” and now it is defending itself from Russia's military intervention that violates the international law.
UNGA Resolution 68/262 affirmed the General Assembly's commitment to the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and underscored the invalidity of the 2014 Crimean referendum http://bit.ly/1RZGnjo.
