Ukraine breaks diplomatic relations with Russia

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced today that his country is breaking diplomatic relations with Russia following the military aggression against Ukrainian territory ordered by Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin.
“This morning has gone down in history, but this story is absolutely different for our country and for Russia. We have severed diplomatic relations with Russia,” he said.
Like the other Soviet socialist republics, Ukraine gained independence in 1991 from the Soviet Union, which disappeared in December of that year as a subject of international law.
Russian-Ukrainian relations have deteriorated since Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the Kremlin’s support for the armed uprising in the Donbas (2014).
Zelensky also stressed that the Ukrainian army is engaged in “heavy fighting” throughout the national geography from “the Donbas to other regions of the east, north and south.”
“The enemy has suffered heavy losses and will suffer even more. They have come to our land,” he said.
And he stressed that the state bank and the Ukrainian financial system have “sufficient resources” to guarantee the defense of the state and “the interests of Ukrainian citizens.”
Earlier, the president ordered his army to cause “the greatest possible losses to the invader” Russian following attacks on several Ukrainian regions.
“The commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine ordered to cause the greatest possible losses to the invader,” the Army said in a statement.
