Oleksiy Goncharenko, a Ukrainian deputy to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, launched a petition for his country to recognize Kosovo’s independence.
Goncharenko asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to consider the possibility of recognizing Kosovo’s independence.
Recalling that Kosovo’s independence is recognized by powerful states, including the United States of America, Goncharenko stressed that international courts have also concluded that Kosovo’s declaration of independence does not contradict international law.
Goncharenko said: “Russia does not recognize the independence of Kosovo, but rather considers it Serbian territory. On the other hand, Kremlin propagandists argue that a step similar to that taken by Putin on February 24 in the Balkans (Russian President Vladimir) should be taken. Use phrases.
Emphasizing that Russia is trying to start a war with Serbia using its national interests as a pretext, Goncharenko said, “Recognizing Kosovo’s independence at the present time will be an indication of Ukraine’s support for the territorial integrity of this country and its struggle for sovereignty. It will also show that Ukraine, like the Western world, stands by Justice and truth.” He said.
Reminding that Kosovo condemns Russia’s attacks on Ukraine, Goncharenko added that if 25 thousand signatures are collected within the scope of the campaign, Zelensky will have to respond to this request.
