Is there a secret protocol in this 2010 Kharkiv pact?
It looks to be an fringe theorie; but to be sure I post it here on this talkpage (might be handy to have it here): newspaper Den claims that 2012 Ukrainian legislation on granting the Russian language the status of "regional language" in Ukraine was part of (these) Kharkiv agreements. — Yulia Romero • Talk to me! 18:12, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

In my recent edit Since criticism section isn't limited to the Ratification process but covers the deal as a whole and its implications. It deserve a section of its own, so I split it from "Ratification and criticism" which was renamed to "Ratification and voting" per the content within its scope.
Also on an unrelated off topic note from the article "Prime Minister Putin opined that the price Russia was asked to pay was exorbitant and remarked, 'No military base in the world is worth that much money...'" - I guess Putin isn't familiar with concept of location, location, location ;) --PLNR (talk) 20:04, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
When did it end?
When did this pact end, or become moot? In February 2014 the Maidan revolutionaries took the Ukrainian government. Russia seems to have taken that as the end of the Kharkiv pact. There was no announcement that I've seen, but Russia promptly took actions to retain access to Sevastopol and the continued basing of their Black Sea Fleet there. Kinda looks like Moscow was not assured of the Kharkiv pact's continuation. Some words to this effect might be on this page. Also, the Russian annexation of Crimea in March 2014 makes the pact moot, does it not? Tomday (talk) 03:58, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
- Since the Pact was an agreement between governments, it fell apart when the Ukraine government ceased to exist. It could have been picked up and continued if neither party denounced the Pact, but Russia promptly denounced the pact on 28 March 2014 as soon as the Ukraine government ceased to exist. The loss of government after a coup is the moment when countries are most vulnerable to invasion or loss of territory. The agreement collapsed. There is no legal defense, and the parties have to start over again from scratch.Santamoly (talk) 19:09, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
