Ukraine won’t recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia2010-05-14 14:36

"For us the issue of territorial integrity and inviolability of frontiers remains critical. Enough said," he highlighted.
Previously President Viktor Yanukovich gave no clear answer on the matter.
After the meeting with Thorbjørn Jagland, the Council of Europe Secretary General, Yanukovich was asked once again.
"Ukraine is ready to support the process of democracy values equality, peoples' rights in territories of frozen conflicts", he said and added that is strongly against the "use of double standards practice." And it was time to consider criteria for granting independence in territories of frozen conflicts.
While answering, he managed to avoid mentioning the states.
Before the election of Yanukovich the Party of Regions claimed it was the then President Yushchenko who obstacled recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Ukraine.
Not so long ago the Ukrainian leader voiced the refuse to recognize them and motivated it with non-acceptance of the double standards policy.
He highlighted the necessity for the UN to work out one set of criteria in the issue of status of Kosovo, South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
As for the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, he said the issue wasn't in agenda.
