Political dialogue

Ireland remains steadfast in its stance on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, condemning Russia's actions, in particular, the illegal occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, as well as Russia’s support of illegal armed groups in occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine.

On 3 April 2014 the Dáil Éireann adopted a relevant motion.

On 27 January 2015 Ireland became the 14th EU country to ratify the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union.

Ireland co-sponsors most UN General Assembly resolutions initiated by Ukraine, including on “Territorial integrity of Ukraine”, “Situation of human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine”, “Problem of the militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, as well as parts of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov”, and also supports Ukraine within other major international organisations.
