A deputy of the Verkhovna Rada and former convicted killer in the Donbass, Nadezhda Savchenko, said that she did not vote for the bill on the Reintegration of Donbass, since it is “legally illiterate.”
“There are a lot of terrible things in this law. A priori the parliament has now removed responsibility from Turchinov and Poroshenko for using armed forces without introducing martial law in the country … This is wrong. It is only necessary ti Poroshenko” said Savchenko.
According to the Ukrainian MP, by adopting this law, the parliament once again proved that it was a populist policy to “show Ukrainians who is who.”
The bill on the Reintegration of Donbass was adopted today by the Ukrainian parliament, specifying Russia as an “aggressor country” and allowing the use of force by the President without having to declare war.
