STA, 22 March 2022 - The government has adopted an initiative to revoke an agreement with Russia on scientific and cultural centres, and submitted it to the parliamentary Foreign Policy Committee for confirmation. The reason for the step is Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The Government Communication Office said the proposal was adopted at Tuesday's session of the government committee on state organisation and public affairs.

The decision was justified with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which the release described as an unacceptable and grave violation of international law and treaties, including the founding Charter of the United Nations.

The agreement, signed in 2011, created the legal basis for the Russian Scientific and Cultural Centre in Ljubljana (Ruski dom v Ljubljani), and a potential such Slovenian institution in Russia, which Slovenia has however never developed.
