Ukraine warns Russia not to encourage separatists

with one comment

KIEV, Ukraine – Ukrainian officials warned Russia on Thursday not to encourage separatist groups in Ukraine and insisted that Russian military ships will have to leave the Black Sea base of Sevastopol when Russia’s lease expires.

The comments revealed the deep tensions between Ukraine and its neighbor to the north following Russia’s war with Georgia in August.

Ukraine fears that Moscow may try to encourage a separatist movement on the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, which hosts Russia’s Black Sea fleet.

Russian and Ukrainian diplomats met in Kiev for the latest round of talks on the future of the Russian Black Sea fleet, stationed at Sevastopol on a lease agreement until 2017.

And Russia just doesn’t mind what warning Ukraine tells them. In fact, there are signs that suggest that Ukraine can be the next country to “invade” after Georgia.
