The Parliament has to recognize the occupation of Ukraine at the legislative level, and laws that offer to restore what’s been destroyed by Putin by means of the state budget can’t be even registered in the Verkhovna Rada. This was stated by people’s deputy of the Samopomich Union faction, Taras Pastukh.
According to him, among the authors of the bill on compensation for damages for the property destroyed in the course of the ATO there are representatives of the President’s faction. “I have a question: is this truly the position of our President? Should all the money withdrawn from the budgets of local communities, hospitals, schools be taken from the state budget and spent on the compensation for what has been destroyed by Putin in Ukraine?” states the MP.
In his opinion, such laws are an attempt to legalize the war initiated by Russia. “We still fail to call a war a war, we are still calling it an anti-terrorist operation. But calling it an anti-terrorist operation the Parliament cannot adopt a law on recognition of the organizations as the terrorist ones and the Security Service cannot bring to justice any of the terrorists either,” underscores Taras Pastukh.
The MP is convinced that such laws cannot be even registered in the Verkhovna Rada, because this gives the Russian TV channels an opportunity to tell the whole world that we state we have no war but a civil conflict in Ukraine, and we take full responsibility for the reconstruction of the territories destroyed by the enemy.
