The adoption of Kiev of the law on the reintegration of Donbass can harm the peaceful settlement of the conflict, said to RIA Novosti, the foreign Ministry of the breakaway Donetsk people’s Republic.

According to the acting head of the Department Natalia Nikonorova, the document was not coordinated with the DNI and LC.

She added that the Ukrainian authorities thus violate the Minsk agreement and are trying to «sabotage the implementation of their obligations.»

«Of course, the adoption of this bill will have no actual effect on Republic, but will cause serious damage to the settlement process,» said Nikonorova.

She stressed that the document contradicts the Minsk agreements. It contained «rather a statement of intent to unleash a full-fledged military operations», stated acting Minister of foreign Affairs.

«Even in its name now doesn’t sound «reintegration» of Donbass, as it did in the original version of the bill, and the phrase «resumption of sovereignty», which also shows the desire of the Ukrainian authorities to resolve the situation peacefully,» — concluded February.

Consideration of document

The Ukrainian Parliament approved the document in first reading in October 2017. In the second it is planned to consider on Tuesday. The representative of the President of Petro Poroshenko in the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Lutsenko said that the bill needs to pass in the near future, the text will be as close to the proposed head of state.

It gives the President the right to use the armed forces in the region in peacetime for the sake of protecting the country’s sovereignty. This will allow to legalize the use of the army in the East without a Declaration of war.

A document in which Russia is called an aggressor, adopted with amendments, eliminating the paragraph about the priority of the Minsk agreements to resolve the conflict. Instead, it is proposed to rely on the UN security Council resolution on Donbass.

In fact impose martial law

The representative of the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for human rights Mikhail Chaplya believes that in fact this bill imposes martial law without the necessary procedure envisaged by the Constitution.

«Therefore, the property companies, entrepreneurs and individuals can be used to protect the interests of the state,» he said.

According to co-Chairman of the faction «the Opposition bloc» Yuriy Boyko, the adoption of the law will complicate the work of the mediation mission to resolve the conflict involving the United States and Russia. «And most importantly: the law does not give an answer how to resume the territorial integrity of the state, to regain the territory and people through diplomacy,» — said the Deputy.
