“There are no guarantees of the Ukrainian state for the UESU’s
obligations to the Defense Ministry… If the Justice Ministry does not
know this, I have to inform them that government guarantees are included
by finance ministries in the state budget,” Vlasenko told reporters on
Monday near Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 in Kharkiv, where his client
is undergoing treatment.

According to him, should there be such guarantees, then all these 16
years, these guarantees would be taken into account in the state budgets
of the Russian Federation and Ukraine.

“These budgets are approved by parliaments and fulfilled by finance
ministries. If these guarantees existed, then for sure, Russia would
have already made such claims to Ukraine, and would not silently wait
for 16 years,” the lawyer said.
