This bill strikes a blow to the international image of Ukraine, the leader of the Ukrainian choice.

The true purpose of the bill to limit the right of Ukrainians to emigrate to Russia is breaking remaining ties between the countries. The leader of the public movement of the Ukrainian choice – the Right of the people Viktor Medvedchuk writes in his article published in the newspaper Arguments and facts in Ukraine.

“Not in time, the Verkhovna Rada in the first reading vote for the so-called law on the reintegration of Donbass, as legislators began to produce a new “brilliant” ideas… Another crazy idea of MPs (in this time the authors were made by members of the BPP A. Sinkovics, A. Nemirovsky, and also independent Deputy A. Denisenko) – temporarily limit the right of Ukrainians to emigrate to Russia obviously will go down in the annals of legislative absurdity of the Verkhovna Rada of the VIII convocation”, – said Medvedchuk.

He noted that we are talking about the draft law of Ukraine “On amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine (regarding the introduction of a temporary restriction of the right of citizens of Ukraine on departure from Ukraine to the state-aggressor)”. First of all, the ban in Russia applies to all civil servants except the employees of the diplomatic services.

“When you study this, I may say, the product of legislative activity, one might wonder about the sanity of the deputies who was making it… law-making activity of the sponsors of this bill – Nemirovsky, Sinkovich and Denisenko – worthy, perhaps, of a separate study,” – said the leader of Ukrainian choice.

He recalled that the Deputy Denisenko missed 88% of the plenary sessions of the Verkhovna Rada, and the “top of his legislative activity was the decision on renaming of Dnepropetrovsk”. At the same time Nemirovsky is the initiator of the adoption of the “branch of the law in the field of prostitution and the sex agencies” and “branch of the law in the sphere of gambling.”

“The aforementioned trio of lawmakers has a distant view of international relations, diplomacy, and political-legal forms of conflict resolution”, – said Medvedchuk.

According to him, a bill to limit the right of Ukrainians to emigrate to Russia strikes a blow to the international image of Ukraine and personally the President.

“Crazy concoctions of the authors of the draft law on the recruitment of civil servants for conducting anti-state activities do not stand up to scrutiny. The true purpose is much more banal: the gap still remaining ties and the distance of our countries”, – concluded the politician.

As reported Корреспондент.netSBU has developed a bill to limit visits to Russia politicians, officials, representatives of local authorities and public figures. The document provides for criminal liability of officials for visits to the Russian Federation with the purpose of causing harm to the national interests of Ukraine.
