Ukraine didn't actually ban arms sales to Russia until the larger part of the fighting in Donbass was already done. Now it has also abrogated a treaty on cooperation in selling arms to third countries — three years after what it claims was "Russian invasion"
The Ukrainian government has terminated a July 18, 2003 intergovernmental agreement with Russia regulating interaction between the parties in exporting military products to third countries.
The government endorsed a draft resolution on terminating the said agreement without debate at a meeting on Wednesday.
An explanatory note to the document obtained by Interfax says that the resolution's adoption would bring the bilateral agreement in line with the current state of Ukrainian-Russian relations.
It was reported earlier that Ukraine stopped exporting military and dual-purpose goods to Russia in 2014. A presidential decree enforcing a Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council decision and dated August 27, 2014 codified the ban on military-technical cooperation with Russia, including shipments of dual-purpose goods.
The Ukrainian government severed a 1993 intergovernmental agreement on military-technical cooperation with Russia in May 2015. In August of the same year, the government also terminated a 1993 intergovernmental agreement with Russia on industrial and scientific and technical cooperation between defense enterprises.
