According to the parliamentarian, this decision should be considered as a political step.

“This decision will not affect the practical activities of the authorities, because no joint activities have been carried out recently in the fight against terrorism. These actions regarding the treaty are being implemented as a political step, a demonstration of intentions to further destroy the prospects for restoring relations between the two fraternal peoples, ”Novikov said.

Earlier, the Ukrainian government decided to terminate the memorandum with Russia on cooperation in the fight against terrorism.
