To preserve the existing format support from the IMF, the Ukrainian parliamentarians at the legislative level call Russia an “aggressor country”. The official status of such wording, the Verkhovna Rada will give for the first time. According to the representative of the President in the Parliament Iryna Lutsenko, this measure would mean that “Ukraine has the right to defend themselves.” Consultations on the document, which Parliament will consider in the autumn, were held with representatives of the “Norman Quartet” and the United States.
The representative of the President of Ukraine in Parliament Iryna Lutsenko said on the air “the Fifth channel” about the imminent adoption of the document in which Russia officially declared “country-aggressor”.
“On the legislative level, is the notion that Russia is aggressor country. This means that Ukraine has the right to defend themselves. This again is not war, and self-defense”, – she explained to journalists.
The adoption of these innovations dictated by the need to keep the existing format support of the IMF, said Lutsenko.
According to Lutsenko, the document is almost fully prepared for the consideration of the Parliament and can be adopted in the autumn.
The wording on the aggressor contained in the bill on the reintegration of Donbass, which will give Kiev the right to self-defence and take responsibility for the situation on the “temporarily occupied territories”.
As says the representative of Poroshenko in the Parliament, the initiative is based on the 51st article of the Charter of the United Nations concerning self-defence. At the stage of preparation the document was discussed with representatives of the “Norman Quartet” and the United States. Recall that in the consultations in the Normandy format, involving Ukraine, France, Germany and Russia.
Earlier, the Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko said about the intention to introduce a similar document to the Parliament. Then from his words it became known that Kiev is at the legislative level plans to shoot ATO mode and go to the format of “military operation”. Controlled self-proclaimed republics in territory declared the “temporarily occupied”. The Kremlin then said that they do not possess detailed information about the document.
Days earlier, the US special envoy to Ukraine spoke about the prospects of the situation around Donbass, promising Russia’s complete isolation in the case of “freezing” of the conflict.
According to Kurt Volker, Moscow will face a total economic and diplomatic blockade of attempts to freeze the conflict in Eastern Ukraine. However, he believes that such a scenario does not suit Russia.
“Russia wants to freeze the conflict in the Donbas and is paying the price of sanctions. Any diplomatic, economic relations can be terminated with Moscow. It’s not something like Russia”, — said the representative of the state Department.
