ASTANA – Ukraine's Regions Party and the ruling party in Kazakhstan, Nur Otan, have agreed to cooperate.
An Interfax-Ukraine reporter said that a cooperation agreement was signed in Astana on Thursday in the presence of Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, Regions Party deputy head Leonid Kozhara and First Deputy Chairman of the Nur Otan People's Democratic Party Nurlan Nigmatulin.
Before signing the document, Azarov noted that the Regions Party "has taken the path of the expansion of international contacts."
"We have outgrown our former limits, when the Regions Party was exclusively engaged in internal party affairs," he said.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
