The procedure for the adoption in the Verkhovna Rada of the so-called law on ‘reintegration’ eloquently demonstrated the whole essence of modern Kiev politics, which inherent hypocrisy, the desire to receive the greatest dividends and not to be responsible for anything, constant bargaining, the desire to please everybody but the ordinary people. This opinion was expressed by the Chairman of the People’s Council of the DPR, the Permanent Representative of the DPR to the Contact Group in Minsk Denis Pushilin.
“Voting for 673 amendments to this bill – this is the process of trading directly on the covered market under the dome of the Verkhovna Rada. And the lots are announced: should the inhabitants of the Republic be considered terrorists, should the text of the document include the commitment to the Minsk agreements, whether they allow the delivery of humanitarian supplies to our territories. These and other amendments were rejected by Ukrainian deputies.
And immediately after the curators of the Kiev authorities had a shout out in the form of a call of the US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch not to bury the Minsk agreements in the law on the ‘reintegration’ of the Donbass. She also emphasized that one should not forget “about people, their humanitarian needs and social protection,” hinting at Ukraine’s desire to stop paying pensions to residents of the DPR and the LPR.
To a large extent, consideration of this bill is a concession to nationalist-minded groups of the population of Ukraine, which Poroshenko is no longer can’t but into account. Adoption of the law will increase the degree of hatred and Russophobia, because it significantly impairs the rights of residents of the Donbass, and Russia is generally called the “aggressor country”. It is well known that the world community recognizes the Minsk agreements, in which the Russian Federation is not a party to the conflict, there is a corresponding UN resolution. Thus, Ukraine is trying to transfer fake manipulative techniques from media space to the legal field,” Denis Pushilin believes.
According to him, the adoption of this bill by the Ukrainian parliament once again emphasizes the correctness of the choice of the Donbass people, which it made in 2014.
“What does this bill mean for us? It’s another evidence of awareness of the correctness of our choice, the correctness of isolation from mayhem, in this case legal, at the state level. Even the discussion of the bill on ‘reintegration’ in the Verkhovna Rada and in Ukrainian media shows how much the decisions of politicians, the beginning of activity of which was a coup d’état, can be antidemocratic, antihuman, violating basic human rights,” Denis Pushilin summed up.
