In connection with growth of threat of the revenge of Pro-Russian forces “Samopomich” started collecting signatures for the recognition of the unconstitutional laws on the special status of Donbass and Amnesty for collaborators and mercenaries.

In particular, the submission to the constitutional Court, the party will demand to declare unconstitutional the laws “On special procedure of local self-government in certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts” and “On preventing the prosecution and punishment of persons-participants of events in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions”. This is stated in the statement of the party.

“The previous President Poroshenko together with the ex-regionals in 2014 have actually legalized a special status for Russia-occupied territories in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions and Amnesty for collaborators and Russian mercenaries. Adopted laws, which were written in Moscow, enter:

individual people’s militia in the occupied territories of the two regions, which, together with the judges and prosecutors appointed by the occupation authorities of local self-government;

the right of those occupied territories to enter into an international agreement with Russia;

special status for the Russian language in these areas in the field of education, culture, justice and the activities of public authorities;

Amnesty for all who killed our troops in the East of Ukraine.

These laws are a direct threat to the sovereignty of the state, and also violate the Constitution, which clearly defines Ukraine as a unitary state”, – declare in “Samopomich”.

In party note – I was hoping that these unconstitutional laws will be able to cancel the current convocation of the Verkhovna Rada.

“Since the life of this convocation comes to an end, and in the new Parliament, as opinion polls show, there will be more Russian agents, while the “Samopomich” sees the only way out in the appeal to the constitutional Court”, – noted in party.

“We previous five years told me that this law is needed to maintain sanctions against Russia. Today assurances begin to melt before our eyes – despite the continuation of the war of Russia against Ukraine, the Russian delegation resumed all the rights of the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. This means that each country makes a decision, based solely on their national interests. Therefore, we must do the same. And national interests of Ukraine require as quickly as possible to stop the movement of the country along the path marked in the Kremlin”, – commented Vice-speaker Oksana Rawfoodist.

Recall, the “Samopomich” Union faction in Parliament have consistently fought for the preservation of the sovereignty of Ukraine, the Verkhovna Rada at the initiative of the “Samopomich” was not allowed to implement the Minsk agreement, implementirovan the special status of Donbass in the Ukraine, etc.
