#Commentary of Denis Pushilin on Verkhovna Rada’s refusal to consider resolution on suspension of “Reintegration” law
This is an absolutely predictable act of the Ukrainian parliamentarians that indicates the complete absence of sanity and professionalism. This normative act still does not conform to either the Constitution of Ukraine or international normative legal documents and conventions.
The law on “reintegration” of Donbass excludes any initiatives of peaceful settlement of the conflict. Its purpose is to strengthen the powers of the President, belligerent solutions and disempowered people. But these are the issues of domestic Ukrainian legislation, which consider the logic and any recognized principles of the rule of law useless. For our part, we remain committed to our international obligations and continue to work on the implementation of the Minsk agreements approved by the UN Security Council’s resolution.
