KIEV, May 21. /TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, on Thursday terminated a treaty with Russia on cooperation in the military sphere.

A total of 272 lawmakers voted in favor of the move, above a required minimum of 226 votes.

Russia and Ukraine signed the agreement on November 25, 1995 in Sochi, and the Ukrainian parliament ratified the document in 2002.

An explanatory note says the bill is aimed at "protecting Ukraine’s national interests, independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity."

The authors of the document claim that the Russian side "has unilaterally violated the norms and principles of the international law and carried out armed aggression against Ukraine."

Ukraine cancels treaty with Russia on military interstate transport

The Verkhovna Rada has also scrapped an agreement between the governments of Ukraine and Russia on military interstate transport and related payments.

The bill was initiated by the lawmakers of the Radical Party’s faction.

The parliament has ordered the government and the Foreign Ministry to "take respective actions" following the termination of the document.

The agreement between the Ukrainian cabinet of ministers and the Russian government on organizing military interstate shipments and payment for them was signed in November 1995 in Sochi. The document entered into force in September 2002.
