MFA Ukraine summons Belarus envoy over Lukashenko’s remarks

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on Tuesday summoned Chargé d’Affaires of the Belarus Embassy in Ukraine, Kirill Kamyshev, in the wake of the latest statements by Alexander Lukashenko voiced at his annual press conference August 9.


The diplomat was warned that Lukashenko’s readiness to recognize Russia’s sovereignty over the temporarily occupied Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea was tantamount to complicity in the Kremlin’s crime against Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, which entails all related international legal implications.
