    Moscow has pulled out of an agreement with Kiev on the use of oil product pipelines.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia has terminated a 20-year cooperation agreement with Ukraine on the use of oil product pipelines, a decree published on the Russian Cabinet's website Thursday states.

    The agreement signed on July 26, 1995, envisioned oil product operation along two pipelines stretching across Russia and Ukraine and operated by Transnefteproduct, a member of the Transneft joint-stock company.
