Zelensky: We will respond harshly to Pyongyang’s recognition of Donetsk and Lugansk

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine would “strongly respond at all levels” to North Korea’s recognition of the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics.

“This news does not require further comment,” Zelensky added in a video message on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry announced the severance of diplomatic relations with North Korea in response to its recognition of the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.

In Kyiv, this step was considered “an attempt to undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.”
