Petro Poroshenko has introduced to the Verkhovna Rada a bill on the termination of the Treaty on Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between Ukraine and Russia. The document itself is determined by the president as urgent. Next – in reactions from Opinion.
The reasons for such an initiative, it seems, are crystal clear: the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, which is a significant violation of the Treaty of Friendship itself, cooperation and partnership.
Thus, Petro Poroshenko proposes to terminate the agreement from April 1, 2019, arguing that it frees Ukraine from any obligation to implement it and doesn’t affect the rights, obligations or legal status of our country. In case of adoption, the law will come into force on the day following the day of its publication.
Viktor Ukolov, former MP, said that the president proposes to terminate the agreement, rather than break it since the Treaty itself doesn’t foresee the break. To terminate it, that is to refuse from extending, is possible only once every 10 years, otherwise… it will extend automatically. It’s just in case somebody will have a typical question: “Why not in 2014?”.
However, such a question, of course, was. Political scientist Yuriy Romanenko asked it.
But another political scientist Viktor Taran suggested stockpiling with popcorn and watching who and how will vote in Parliament, election races are gaining new political colors.
Iryna Lutsenko, the MP and the wife of the Prosecutor General, in one of her posts stressed that the MPs will support the initiative of the president of Ukraine, considering that Russia has unilaterally violated almost all the points of this document.
The MP, Andriy Denysenko supported the initiative of Petro Poroshenko, hoping that we’ll wait for that happy pre-election time, when the president and deputies will finally unblock and head the parliament to break the diplomatic relations with the aggressor country, stop the trade, nationalize the occupier’s assets and liquidate its fifth column in media and in politics.
But the political scientist Dmytro Suvorov blamed.. a so-called election hysterics of the president for everything, who is scared by his ratings and decided to stay in power. Shortly, your humble servant only reminds you that the current president hasn’t yet announced his intention to run for the upcoming election. But it’s a whole other thing.
