FM: Unilateral Recognition of Donetsk and Luhansk Violates Int’l Law

February 22, 2022

ATHENS – “Russia’s recognition of the illegal and unilateral declaration of ‘independence’ of Ukraine’s separatist regions of Donetsk and Luhansk constitutes a blatant violation of fundamental principles of International Law, Ukraine’s territorial integrity, and the Minsk agreements,” the foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We have repeatedly stressed that Greece stands for respect of the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of all states and condemns any decision that contravenes these fundamental principles of International Law,” it added.

“In the context of its commitments to the European Union and NATO, Greece will consult and coordinate with its European partners and allies regarding the response to this decision,” according to the foreign ministry.
