Ukraine Severed Shipping Relations With Belarus

On July 29, Ukraine denounced the internal waters shipping agreement with Belarus

In February 1998, Ukraine and Belarus signed an agreement on navigation through the internal waters of the states. The agreement regulated the procedure for the entry of state ships into the waters and ports of the second state, as well as the procedure for the vessel to stay in the waters of another country. The agreement also prescribed the procedure for passenger, freight and transit along the inland rivers of states. The agreement entered into force in May 1998 and was denounced on July 29 by the cabinet of ministers of Ukraine.

Ukraine's decision is justified by the fact that Belarus is a collaborator country of the terrorist country — Russia. Shelling of Ukraine is regularly carried out from the territory of Belarus, leading to the death of the civilian population. And also, Belarus provided its territory for an attack on Ukraine on February 24.

We remind you that as a result of the shelling of Mykolaiv, which was carried out from the territory of Belarus, the Hero of Ukraine and agro-businessman Oleksii Vadatursky was killed. His company Nibulon was the first in Ukraine to use the Dnipro for cargo logistics.
