The passage of the as-yet-untabled amendment is by no means secured, and the results would not be legally binding on the executive.

Kiev has once again made for angry headlines in Moscow as news filtered through that the Ukrainian parliament may vote to break off diplomatic relations with its eastern neighbour as early as next week.

An amendment to a bill “on the reintegration of the Donbass” – the area in eastern Ukraine where conflict broke out in 2014 – would see Ukraine outsource its diplomatic functions in Russia to a third country.

The reported author of the amendment, Ivan Vinnik, is nominally a member of the presidential faction in parliament.

But he is also known for friendly links with coalition partners, the People’s Front – and this may be the source of the issue.

The complicated intergovernmental relations between the two countries have undergone periods of ties, tensions, and outright hostility since 1991.

Prior to Euromaidan (2013-2014), under Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych (in office from February 2010 to February 2014), relations were cooperative, with various trade agreements in place.Although this suspension did not materialize, Ukrainian official Dmytro Kuleba (Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the Council of Europe) acknowledged early April 2016 that diplomatic relations had been reduced "almost to zero".On 5 October 2016 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine officially recommended that its citizens avoid any type of travel to Russia or transit through its territory.Principal deputy chief monitor Alexander Hug told his team had documented a “steady rise in the level of violence” since the latest ceasefire was signed on 25 August.There were 40 recorded instances of the use of indiscriminate, multiple-launch rocket systems in the last week alone.Four weeks later, the minister’s son, Alexander Avakov, was arrested on corruption charges. Mr Avakov believed the President was behind the arrest, the well-connected news agency Liga. By the time of publication Mr Vinnik had not answered ’s calls and requests for comment.
