“Statements of Ukraine about the beginning of consultations concerning the Black Sea fleet withdrawal don’t correspond to the reality,” it is said in the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
“It is true that on April 15 during the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Russia and Ukraine the Ukrainian side gave the Russian side the draft memorandum on stages and order of military units of the RF Black Sea fleet withdrawal from the territory of Ukraine,” the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry says.
It is noted in the document that “the Ukrainian side was told that Moscow will consider this document, but discussions of this topic are not urgent for us”.
The Foreign Ministry of the RF explains that the work in this direction is being held within the framework of the corresponding Subcommittee of the Russian-Ukrainian interstate commission and its working groups.
The Foreign Ministry also notes that the next sitting of the Subcommittee is planned for June 2008.
