Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that Kiev “paused” official contacts at the political level with Minsk. The reason is the situation in the republic.
As Kuleba said on the air of the Pryamoy TV channel, the foreign policy department remains the channel of communication. At the same time, trade between the two countries did not stop.
The Ukrainian ambassador is still in Kiev for consultations, but he may return to Minsk soon.
Earlier, the Belarusian Foreign Ministry said that the Ukrainian authorities are responsible for the consequences of the termination of contacts between the countries. The statement of the department indicates that not Minsk, but Kiev put the contacts “on the so-called” pause “.
