Slovenia urges Russia to immediately stop its financial and military support provided to separatists in Donbas.

This is said in the Joint Declaration on Cooperation of the Countries signed by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and President of Slovenia Borut Pahor following negotiations, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"We condemn the act of aggression on the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in the east of Ukraine and urge the Russian Federation to immediately stop provision of financial, military and other support to local separatists," reads the Declaration.

The document reads that Slovenia will not recognize the illegal annexation of the Crimea by Russia. Slovenia supports the policy of sanctions of the European Union against Russia until full implementation of the Minsk agreements.

Slovenia also supports the "open door" policy of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and reforms in Ukraine aiming at achieving the standards of the Alliance.

In the opinion of Slovenia this will lead to the political association and economic integration of Ukraine with the European Union.

The Declaration calls for cancellation of visa requirements for Ukrainians.
