A bill to restore sovereignty over the occupied part of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko wants to protect themselves from further criticism for the lack of recognition of the occupation, said the Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Oksana Syroid in the video, published by «24 channel».
«To recognize the occupation, of course, necessary. But solely in order to protect people affected by the occupation, and the soldiers that protect us. And in order to prosecute Russia, her collaborators, mercenaries and spies,» she said.
Syroid added that you need to determine the date of the beginning of the occupation.
«In accordance with the rules of international humanitarian law to fix the responsibility of Russia for the people under occupation and the consequences of this occupation. Finally, it is the law, and not «secret» regulations to determine the impact of occupation on the rights and freedoms of Ukrainians who suffered from it. The bill President dates, procedures, consequences and the responsibility of Russia. Therefore, the Ukrainians will not receive anything. And Russia will have another argument, saying, what occupation, if they can’t determine the «when» and «where», – said Vice-speaker.
She stressed that the President is not the recognition of the occupation and its consequences, «another Declaration-a profanation».
«According to the text of the bill is also not difficult to guess his true purpose. First of all, the President traditionally wants to devalue a good idea to protect yourself from further criticism for not recognizing the occupation. The President, obviously, would also like to completely hide the Treaty talks now act to extend the special status for the occupied territories. Which, incidentally, proves the insincerity of the President to recognize these territories are occupied,» added Syroid.
