MOSCOW, may 17. /TASS/. Introduction by the Ukrainian authorities to ban the use of the symbol of Victory – St. George ribbon is a blasphemy, a triumph of obscurantism and speaks about the value crisis of the state. This opinion was expressed to journalists by the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on constitutional legislation and state construction Andrey Klishas.
According to him, the decision before the decision of the Verkhovna Rada to ban the use of the ribbons, along with other introduced restrictive measures will not lead to anything else as to the escalation of the social crisis. “Ban St. George ribbon, the cultivation of Russophobia, the denial of their own history – a pure triumph of obscurantism” – quoted Klishas his press service.
