The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine introduced a bill prohibiting the use of combinations of letters — LC and the DNI. Instead of these abbreviations deputies “popular front” was proposed to use the phrase “criminal organization, the self-proclaimed on the territory of Donetsk/Luhansk region” or “illegal armed formation”. For violation of the law provides for criminal liability: imprisonment for up to 5 years with possible confiscation of property. “MK” asked the Plenipotentiary representative LNR in the contact group, how their side would react to such a formulation of Ukraine, if she will feature at the talks in Minsk.
The document tabled in Parliament by the Deputy from “popular front”, the commander of the battalion “Aydar” Igor Lapin. Earlier this person was offered at the legislative level to recognize Russia as “aggressor state”, advocated the severance of diplomatic relations and the introduction of a visa regime with Russia.
To find common sense in the current initiative Lapin is not possible. Bill No. 5086 “On prohibition of propaganda of criminal organizations operating in the territory of certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions” prohibits publicly to use the name Republic of Donbass, to use the symbolism of the DND and LNR, as well as use in the media these abbreviations. The prohibition extends to members of political parties of Ukraine, individual members, legal entities and ordinary citizens. And if the Ukrainian repeatedly violates the act (unless, of course, it will) you risk to get as much as 10 years with confiscation.
As the project extends to all, including the diplomats, one wonders how the representatives of Ukraine at the Minsk talks will address the representatives of the republics? Dear “members of criminal organizations or illegal armed formation”?
His opinion regarding the bill, “MK” shared Vladislav Deinego, the Plenipotentiary representative LNR in the contact group on Ukraine:
-I don’t think this law will be adopted. This is another example of nationalism in a clinically severe variant.. If this form of treatment will be used, of course, the dialogue will be over. It is unlikely that someone from the representatives of Ukraine. slide to such idiocy They understand that first and foremost, the dialogue they need. I hope they have enough sense not to use such language.
Expert on Ukraine, said Alexander Dudchak in turn recalled the “MK” the story from the book about Harry Potter.
-The characters there said: “the name of him who must not be named”. Not yet adopted the law, speak with DPR, LPR, and then, as in a fairy tale. The leadership of Ukraine the sea of original ideas. They opened this Pandora box and I can’t seem to shut him up. . They may not be called the Republic of LNR and DND, but this situation will not change – neither in the country nor on the confrontation line, nor in the unrecognized republics. . All they are doing is destructive and destroys the age-old practices. The mind is not enough even to build monuments to their so called heroes. Stele heavenly hundred broke, and can not recover until now.
