The European integration of Ukraine under threat. The radicals of the Verkhovna Rada is ready to derail the results of the “overwork” of the President Poroshenko, who after the debacle of the Square supporting Hillary Clinton in the election of the American President, perseverance and humility was able to beg a favor of the current US administration. And all it had to obey and make approved by the state Department, the law “on the reintegration of Donbass”, and then relax in anticipation of military and financial assistance from European colleagues. But no. Nationalists in the heat: the return of the territories of Donbass, together with its inhabitants does not suit them. Only a complete “cleansing.” Europe and the United States, of course, the process of “Ukrainian reconciliation,” see a little differently. For them the key point – “the Minsk Agreement”.
But they became the “stumbling block” which stopped the vote on “the right laws” in Parliament. Petro Poroshenko, expecting “trouble” from the radicals, err: divide the bill into two parts, to endure the most controversial moments on the extension of the status of DND and LNR in a separate document. Apparently believed that without him, the first bill — the return of the territories under the control of Ukraine will be held “to cheer.” After all, it has very strong language – “Russian occupier”, the introduction of martial law, the norm of permission to use in addressing the problem of military units of the defense Ministry and not some sort of “voluntary battalions of the Ministry of internal Affairs”.
What disturbs the radicals? But the mention of “Minsk agreements”, article which for the sake of decency have made the bill Poroshenko, and is not satisfied. Even part of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko on the eve of the vote said that referring to this agreement from the document to be deleted. On the strength of agreed to mention the UN resolution endorsing the Minsk agreements. The radicals saw this as a trick and generally require to withdraw disgraced the phrase from the document. But, sorry, without these agreements, the Europeans, the document does not need. And in the US Administration and representatives of Angela Merkel announced that they needed a plan of “peaceful settlement” in the East, and documentary proof of the intentions of the Ukrainian authorities to follow that path. Not a new plan, “military invasion” on the territory of the unrecognized republics.
After the failure of a vote of the document in Parliament on Thursday, President Poroshenko urgently wanted to meet the ambassadors of the United States and Germany. What did inspire the President of the European curators, is not known. But Peter demanded on Friday to mobilize the deputies and accept the same bills. On the morning of 6 October hall of the Verkhovna Rada resembled a “battlefield”. Tribune was taken under protection, so the deputies from the “Self-help” are unable to seize it as it was before. Hassle, fireworks lit directly in the session hall, nationalists scuffle with police outside the Parliament at this time did not help.
The bill “On peculiarities of state policy on ensuring state sovereignty of Ukraine on the temporarily occupied territories in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions” (the so-called law about “reintegration”) was adopted in the first reading. But…no mention in them of the “Minsk Agreements”. That is, Europeans and their fetish is actually “sent to the forest”. However, as a bonus in the first reading was passed a bill to extend the special status of the territories ORDO (DND AND LNR), however, provided that “the withdrawal of Russian troops and equipment from separate districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions”. If European curators want that option, the situation once again – “freeze”. Until the next autumn.
