The Parliament gave an opportunity to rethink the law on the Donbass – former MP

Раде дали возможность переосмыслить закон о Донбассе – экс-нардеп

Oleynik commented on the law on the reintegration of Donbass

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on 6 February will vote a resolution on the abolition of the law on the reintegration of Donbass, was the Opposition bloc. If you typed 226 votes – the law is obliged to cancel.

The Parliament of Ukraine given the chance once again to weigh all “for” and “against” law on reintegration of Donbass. This opinion on his page in Facebook was expressed by former MP Vladimir Oleynik, commenting on registered in the Parliament on the decision of MPs from the opposition bloc.

We will remind, in the Verkhovna Rada on Friday, January 19, registered a draft resolution on the abolition of the law on the reintegration of Donbass. The initiators of the document No. 7163-P were MPs from the Opposition bloc Yuriy Boyko, Alexander Vilkul and Mykhailo Papiyev.

“On Thursday the adoption of a Law on reintegratsii of Donbass voted 280 deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. The MPs promptly voted for a Law that contradicts the Constitution, and in fact, decoupling a full-scale war against its own people. But common sense is not completely left the walls of Parliament. People’s deputies of Ukraine Alexander Vilkul, Boyko and Michael Pope from the Opposition bloc submitted a draft resolution on cancellation of the decision of the Parliament on the adoption of the criminal law… the MPs just have to, before you make a decision, to consult with their constituents in the districts and make the right choice. There is still time to correct the legislative error, which can become a tragedy for the Ukrainian people, to create new division in society and cause implications to overcome that then it will be almost impossible,” – wrote Oliynyk.

The ex-MP recalled that the regulations require to consider this resolution at the next meeting of the Verkhovna Rada.

“For the Parliament’s February 6, when MPs return from winter break. If the review vote of 226 deputies, the law on the reintegration of Donbass should be repealed. However, there is concern that the speaker of Parliament Andriy Parubiy may declare that the law was signed, and the legislative initiative of the deputies of the Opposition bloc is not kept up to date. I believe that in this case, the Chairman of Parliament commit a crime, and will be subject to prosecution. That allows me to say that criminal law has not been signed? Document of great political importance were considered in the Ukrainian Parliament two days. It was made 673 corrections and clarifications. Technically, to issue a document for signing by the speaker and the President of the country in one night is simply impossible. An additional argument in favor of the unwillingness of the law to be signed is the fact that his absence on the website of the Verkhovna Rada and parliamentary committees,” he writes.

Oleinik points out that in society there is a strong belief about the need for peace in the Ukrainian land.

“Recent social surveys show that 75 percent of Ukrainians are in favor of peace, not war. Another 50 percent of respondents say the need to compromise in the way out of the crisis in the Donbas. Thus, the deputies are required just before you make a decision, to consult with their constituents in the districts and make the right choice. There is still time to correct the legislative error, which can become a tragedy for the Ukrainian people, to create new division in society and cause implications to overcome that then it will be almost impossible,” he concluded.

As reported, on January 18, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law on de-occupation of uncontrolled territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, which defines Russia as an aggressor. The document does not mention the Minsk agreement.

January 9, the Verkhovna Rada closed session VII. VIII Parliament. Next time deputies will gather on February 6.
