No evidence of aggression by Russia in Kiev, and when there is no evidence that ” we have to make laws,” said the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.
Earlier, the representative of the President of Ukraine in the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Lutsenko said that Russia in the Ukrainian draft law on the reintegration of Donbass will be called the “aggressor”. According to her, the bill is “99.9% finished and ready to register in Parliament”.
“The intention of Kiev to call Russia an “aggressor” at the legislative level, paradoxically, demonstrates only that have not sufficient arguments,” Kosachev wrote in Facebook.
According to him, when there is a real aggression, the aggressor is obvious to all. “But when no evidence, no confidence, no, we have to make laws, which prescribe who should be considered the aggressors, and who is not. Because it is not obvious, but I really want” , — the politician noted.
Kosachev stressed that “Russian aggression” has become a major national and state-forming idea of post-Maidan Ukraine. “No ” aggressor” power would be quickly called to account for the sharp deterioration of the social situation and unresolved problems from which people came to the Maidan” , — he said.
“And the fact that it is accepted in the form of a law, i.e. the law of long-term action, not in the form of some Declaration, said that Kiev will try to stretch the “Russian aggression” as a propaganda meme for the longest period, and it is a very bad signal to the Minsk agreements” , — said the Senator.
In addition, there are quite prosaic and “selfish” interests in such a heavy accusation against another state, he said, Recalling the words of the representative of the President of Ukraine in the Verkhovna Rada that ” it is for the international monetary Fund gave us the means, it is for investors.” “Cynical nowhere: without the “aggressor” will not give money,” — said Kosachev.
In January 2015 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has accepted the statement in which Russia is called “an aggressor” , as Kiev believes that Russia intervenes in the Affairs of Ukraine is a party to the conflict in the Donbass. Evidence of this was provided. The Russian foreign Ministry called the allegations “unsubstantiated public insinuations”.
Kiev has repeatedly accused Moscow of meddling in Ukraine’s Affairs. Russia denies it and calls such accusations unacceptable. Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to domestic conflict and is not privy to the events in Donbasse and is interested in Ukraine overcame political and economic crisis.
