The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) handed over to Russia a note of protest over Russia's recognition of the so-called certificates of origin of goods issued in the part of the territory temporarily occupied by Russia in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

The Foreign Ministry has said this in a commentary, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"We consider the signing by the President of Russia of decree No. 657 of November 15, 2021 on the recognition by Russia of the so-called certificates of origin of goods, which are issued in the part of the territory temporarily occupied by Russia in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as gross interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine, violation of its legislation and norms of international law," the statement reads.

The Foreign Ministry reports that the recognition of "certificates", the unilateral determination of checkpoints in order to move goods across the temporarily uncontrolled section of the state border of Ukraine and other measures provided for by the decree clearly demonstrate the purposeful policy of Russia to pull the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine into its economic, political, electoral and information space.

"The signing of the decree contradicts Russia's obligations under the Minsk Agreements and agreements within the framework of the Normandy Format, and suspends the efforts of Germany, France and Ukraine to resume the productive work of these important sites for a peaceful settlement," the ministry said.

A corresponding note of protest has been sent to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Foreign Ministry handed over to Russia a note of protest over the military exercises of the Black Sea Fleet in Crimea.
