Moscow Refuses to Recognize Kiev’s Unilateral Border Demarcation – Russian Lawmaker

MOSCOW, June 17 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will not recognize Kiev’s decision on the unilateral demarcation of the border, which would lead to ongoing border disputes, Russian lawmaker Alexei Pushkov said.

"We can assume that Russia will not recognize the unilateral demarcation at least because it is contrary to all norms of the international law," Chairman of the Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Alexei Pushkov said during a parliamentary session on Tuesday.

"Unilateral demarcation of the border does not exist. In case Kiev does not know this, a mixed commission is always created to decide on demarcation, the two sides are engaged in the process, and it becomes the subject of a separate agreement between the states,” Pushkov said.

The committee chairman said a border drawn by a single side is illegal, unrecognized and has no legal force. "Therefore, unilateral demarcation of the border is a path to ongoing border disputes with Russia," Pushkov further explained.

Earlier, it was reported that the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine has decided to unilaterally define the border with Russia. NSDC Secretary Andriy Parubiy said at a briefing on Monday that Kiev would be constructing the necessary facilities and would unilaterally demarcate the border, not only in the battle-torn areas, but throughout the whole of the Russian-Ukrainian border.

The secretary said the border would be equipped at the expense of the state budget, and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has insisted on completing the work as soon as possible.
