Ukrainian Parliament denies human rights to Donbass

Today, on May 21, the Ukrainian Supreme Rada has passed in the second reading a resolution on Ukraine receding from the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the International Pact on Civil and Political Rights and the European Social Charter. 249 MPs voted for it with 226 votes needed.

Thus, Kiev has confirmed its intention not to observe human rights in the “anti-terror operation zone” – in Donbass, where the Ukrainian Armed Forces have been conducting a punitive expedition. As EADaily reported earlier, initiators of the move are MPs Oksana Syroyid, Olena Sotnyk, Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze, Leonid Yemets, Anna Hopko, Viktor Vovk, Ostap Semerak and Boryslav Bereza.

“The goal of the resolution is to give a legal basis for the Ukrainian government via the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry to inform secretaries general of the UN and the Council of Europe on measures taken by Ukraine due to the need to rebuff the armed aggression,” say the authors of the initiative.
