Deputies found the initiative useful for the people
On 7 February took place the regular session of the Verkhovna Rada. Parliament passed an important law which forbids citizens to attend the elections. The details given in the explanatory Memorandum.
We are talking about bill, bill No. 9524, entitled “On amendments to some laws of Ukraine on observation of the electoral process in Ukraine.” It was approved by a majority of votes. “For” was made by 232 deputies.
Soon a new law signed by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko gain their strength. Citizens of the Russian Federation, recognized as an aggressor country will not be allowed to participate in the electoral process. Even as independent observers. In addition, Russia is deprived of the right to propose their candidates for the observation from other countries.
The authors of the project are concerned that the presence of Russians on the presidential elections in March could trigger information attacks through misrepresentation. The same applies to elections to the Verkhovna Rada, which is scheduled for autumn this year. MPs expect ban will minimize the probability of intervention by Russia and its representatives.
