Press release on the 20th anniversary of the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between the Russian Federation and Ukraine of May 31, 1997
31/05/2017

May 31 will mark 20 years since the signing of the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between the Russian Federation and Ukraine. The Big Treaty, as we call it informally, became the backbone of bilateral relations. It laid the foundations for long-term strategic partnership between our countries in politics, the economy, energy, transport, the military-technical sphere, science, culture, education, information and healthcare. Signing it in 1997, the Russian and Ukrainian leaders were determined to continue close cooperation and in-depth development of relations.  

In those years, we were imbued with the hope to develop and strengthen bilateral ties. The Big Treaty became a framework of our contractual foundation on which dozens of documents of bilateral cooperation in all areas were signed.

Regrettably, the coup d’etat in Kiev in 2014 carried our relations far away from the spirit and letter of the Big Treaty. However, its very existence points to the presence of the foundation for restoring bilateral ties. Despite openly hostile steps by the current Kiev authorities, we are saying time and again that Russia is open to constructive dialogue and mutually beneficial cooperation. We have no doubt that sooner or later we will accept the need to restore full-fledged ties between our countries and people.
