Pyotr Poroshenko, after the failure of the mission in Munich, solemnly signed the law “On the peculiarities of the state policy on ensuring the state sovereignty of Ukraine over temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Lugansk region,” which is briefly referred to as the “reintegration law”, “de-occupation law” or “The law of war.”
“This law significantly strengthens the legal basis for the use of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other power units for the defense of our state. At the same time, it establishes rules for protecting the rights and freedoms of ci-vilians, “the Ukrainian president said. On the protection of the “rights and freedoms of the civilian population”, they did not blush: according to the “de-occupation law”, the military is just getting all the opportunities to infringe upon the civilian population by conducting searches, raids and detentions without any sanctions. Even now they are allowed to use weapons.
Poroshenko is eager to change the format of the military operation before April 1 and appoint the chief of the Joint Staff. Now in the Donbass is not an anti-terrorist operation, but “measures to ensure national security and defense, in order to contain and repel Russian armed aggression.” Accordingly, from the date of publication of the law signed by the president, Russia is considered to be an “occupier” in Ukraine, and the leadership of the rebellious republics of the People’s Republic of Donetsk and the People’s Republic of Lugansk are “occupation administrations”.
From the head of the General Staff of Ukraine Victor Mouzhenko and the Minister of Defense Stepan Poltorak, the head of the Ukrainian state, who received the powers of the military dictator as a result of the adoption of the “de-occupation” law, also demanded a “strategic plan” for the Armed Forces of Ukraine activities in the Donbass in the format of “deterrence and rebuff …”.
In fact, the signature of Petro Poroshenko under the bill means that offi-cial Kiev on paper determined the status of the conflict in the Donbass as in-terstate and put an end to the possibility of direct dialogue with the People’s Republic of Donetsk and the People’s Republic of Lugansk – now they are “in-vaders”. Apparently, the population of the republics has the same status, be-cause the social amendments to the draft law on the “de-occupation” of the Donbass were ignored, except for the recognition of the documents of the Peo-ple’s Republic of Donetsk and the People’s Republic of Lugansk on birth and death and the opportunity to sue Russia without charge in Ukrainian courts. All the rest, including the admission of humanitarian supplies to the republics, Ukrainian deputies decided to reject, but the officials of the People’s Republic of Donetsk and the People’s Republic of Lugansk, as well as all the citizens that Ukraine is caught up in connection with the structures of the republics, face criminal prosecution and prison.
“The law on” reintegration “signed by the Ukrainian president, adopted in violation of the current legislation of Ukraine and international conventions, is only a belated way to legitimize all the violence that is so boldly applied against the inhabitants of the republics,” said the chairman of the People’s Council People’s Republic of Donetsk Denis Pushilin. In his opinion, this law “can not save the leadership of Ukraine in the person of Poroshenko and Turchin from punishment for the genocide of the people of Donbass and viola-tion of all possible laws.”
“The law on reintegration signed by Poroshenko is a very conceivable at-tempt to legalize violence and the use of the army and weapons against the in-habitants of the Donbas. This law will not save Poroshenko and Turchinov from punishment for violating the laws of their own country. And it will not save the country, which legitimized the war with the civilian population. The adoption and signing of this law is another round of the destructive policy of Kiev against the inhabitants of the Donbass, “said the head of the Foreign Min-istry of People’s Republic of Lugansk, Vladislav Deynego, the republic’s per-manent representative to the negotiations in Minsk.
“Having signed the law on the reintegration of Donbass, Poroshenko simply brushed off the Minsk agreements from the table as unnecessary. On every page of this law the word “war” is spelled out. There are already state-ments in Ukraine that the law on the reintegration of Donbass is the first step to obtaining a legislative carte blanche for the Armed Forces “to finally solve” the issue on the territory of LDPR in terms of a force scenario, “believes Dmit-ry Belik, a deputy of the State Duma of Russia from Sevastopol.
A week earlier, the secretary of the Ukrainian Council for National Secu-rity and Defense argued that the “de-occupation” law offers opportunities for a large-scale force operation in the Donbas. “We do not say that today we can liberate the occupied territory exclusively by force. But this law does not ex-clude such a path and creates a prerequisite for this. In order not to take addi-tional legislative acts that would provide a legal framework for the use of force during the counteraction to the aggressor, “Turchinov said.
So, the LDPR war is actually declared. What’s next?
