The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted controversial law on the reintegration of Donbass, in fact, negates all the work in the framework of the “Normandy format”. Since, as the document will be signed by the President of Petro Poroshenko, “Minsk agreements” will lose even its current declarative force.
For the document as drafted, voted 280 deputies with the required minimum of 226 votes. The law will enter into force on the day following its publication, which will follow the signing of the document by the head of state.
Long time no news that the law on reintegration has envoy anti-Russian orientation. So RF in the document called the “aggressor”, despite the fact that Moscow has repeatedly denied any involvement in the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine. This is the East, in those areas where the installed power of the self-proclaimed DND and LNR, the law encourages considered “occupied” territory.
Important point: from the document at the first reading of the clause about the priority of the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Now Kiev is to rely on the resolution of the UN security Council.
Held Kiev in 2014 the so-called anti-terrorist operation in the Donbas can now to gain legal status: the law gives the President the right to use the armed forces in the region in peacetime. In other words, Kiev receives the right to use troops in the Donbass without a Declaration of martial law.
