The intention of the authorities of Ukraine to declare Russia as “aggressor country” at the legislative level is another attempt of Kiev to confront Moscow and the West. This view was expressed by the first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Vladimir Jabbarov.
The building of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine
Ukraine has drafted a new bill on the reintegration of Donbass, where Russia for the first time will be officially named the “aggressor state”.
As a result, Kiev will have the right to self-defence and will not be held responsible for the situation “on the temporarily occupied territories” (Ukraine called self-proclaimed DND and LNR — ed.), as well as retain the existing format support from the International monetary Fund.
The representative of the Ukrainian President at the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Lutsenko said that the draft law was discussed with colleagues in the “channel format” and experts from the United States. The document will be introduced in Parliament this fall.
