Poroshenko reports that he talked with the mother of one of the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who lives in the "occupied territories".
Dear ours, dear ones, I hear an agitated, trembling voice. You do not leave us, right? We ask, come back soon and return us to Ukraine- said the president.
Poroshenko noted that in response he thanked the woman for her son and assured her that Ukraine would return the Donbass.
In his opinion, this goal, in particular, will be promoted by the bills on Donbass adopted today by the Verkhovna Rada. At the same time, he sharply responded to the unrest that arose in parliament due to the consideration of these bills.
A day earlier, the deputies staged a fight in the session hall of the parliament during the discussion of the law on the reintegration of Donbass. The fight occurred after representatives of the “Self-help” faction and some extra-factional parliamentarians blocked the presidium, while others of their colleagues tried to prevent them.
The bill was submitted to the Ukrainian parliament on October 4. A normative act enshrines the status of Russia as an aggressor country, introduces the concept of “Russian occupying power”. Also, the draft law allows the introduction of troops, the use of armed forces in any period and for an indefinite period, gives the president the authority to declare martial law. Rada supported the bill 6 of October.
Kiev constantly accuses the Russian Federation of certain aggressive actions, including involvement in the armed conflict in the Donbass. At the same time, the Ukrainian courts do not recognize the fact of the armed aggression of Russia. Moscow, for its part, denies these allegations, pointing out the lack of evidence.
