In the Verkhovna Rada a draft law on criminal responsibility for the support of the “occupation” of Crimea. About this on air of the talk show “Freedom of speech” said the head of the Ukrainian delegation to the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), MP from the faction “people’s Servant” Elizabeth Jasko. The video is available on YouTube.
“I want to say is very important about the initiative, which I now develop, is the law of non-recognition is the occupation. We have a situation very often Russian narratives split our society. We have a fifth column, many go to Moscow, publicly supported the occupation of Crimea. I think that Ukraine should be criminal liability for such public persons who are, by the way, even in our Parliament,” said Jasko about the initiative to start criminal prosecution.
On 26 June the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky promised to return the Crimea and its residents in the country. “We all return: and return the Crimea, and people. We believe in it”, — he said Crimean Tatar activist Eden Bekirova.
Crimea and Sevastopol became part of Russia in March 2014 after a referendum in which the majority of voters the people of the region supported this decision. Ukraine, the EU and the United States refused to recognize the election results, calling the reunification of the Peninsula with the mainland Russia “annexation.” In Moscow deny these charges and insist that the accession of the region conform to the norms of international law.
