The question of the severance of diplomatic relations with Russia should be put in a separate bill, and not go “one line” in the project for the reintegration of Donbass. This was on the sidelines of the Parliament, said MP, the President’s representative in the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Lutsenko, the correspondent of LIGA.net.
She commented that in the draft law on the reintegration of Donbass has been amended on the rupture of diplomatic relations with Russia.
“Let’s divide the question of the severance of diplomatic relations and the question of the President’s strategy for reintegration of Donbass”, – she noted.
Lutsenko said that the President Petro Poroshenko has submitted to Parliament its strategy to return the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. “The question of the severance of diplomatic relations may be governed by separate law, separate procedure, and not one amendment in order to be advertized on this issue,” she said.
According to Lutsenko, it should be a separate law. “If the legislators who contributed to the President’s proposed strategy, see the opportunity – let them offer a separate law. It can’t be one line in two sentences” she said, adding that the project should also include the procedure for its implementation, the order of actions of all authorities, the procedure for crossing the border.
Lutsenko said that the foreign Ministry “has repeatedly filed their vision about severance of diplomatic relations”. “Served people’s deputies, will propose a separate act – will create a separate group and the private law can be seen in the room,” she said.
At the same time, the people’s Deputy from Blok Petro Poroshenko Alexey Goncharenko, answering the question whether the Pro-presidential faction to support the severance of diplomatic relations with Russia, said, “No, because Ukraine needs to act not on emotions, emotionally to break off relations with Russia, and rationally. If we, on our initiative will break off diplomatic relations with Russia, it will give Russia the reason to say that Ukraine emerges from the peace talks that Ukraine comes out of diplomatic negotiations is then removed from the us sanctions. Here is what will be the result.” In his opinion, such a solution is dangerous to the state.
