MFA summons Kyrgyzstan's ambassador over circumvention of sanctions against Russia

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has summoned the Ambassador of Kyrgyzstan to Ukraine Idris Kadyrkulov to obtain explanations regarding the information about the use of Kyrgyzstan's jurisdiction to circumvent sanctions against Russia.

That's according to a statement from the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Ukrinform reports.

As noted, it was, in particular, about the supply of dual-use products and high-tech components and products that can be used for the manufacture of weapons.

The diplomat's attention was drawn to the fact that the Kyrgyz Republic, as a member of the international community, should be responsible for complying with the international sanctions policy against Russia.

It was emphasized that re-export of goods from Kyrgyzstan to Russia that can be used to arm military equipment will be regarded by the Ukrainian side as unfriendly actions aimed at supporting Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.
