Moscow will respond to Kiev’s decision to terminate the lease agreement for the land the Russian Embassy sits on, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said at a briefing on Friday, APA reports citing TASS.
"Certainly. There is also land here under the Ukrainian Embassy and so on. So it is obvious that relevant measures will be taken," the Kremlin official said replying to a question as to whether Russia will react to such moves.
The proposal to terminate the lease agreement for the Russian Embassy’s land was put forth before the Kiev city council by the pro-presidential People’s Servant party in early April. It also suggested that the Ukrainian government nationalize the diplomatic agency’s building.
