If the General Assembly, the United Nations Security Council, the Council of the European Union have decided to impose sanctions to protect the national interests, national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the president of Ukraine alone decides to apply similar content sanctions within one month from the day they are applied- says the text of the bill, published on the website of the Verkhovna Rada.
It is also proposed to give the right to impose sanctions on the Ukrainian parliament.
The decision to apply, cancel and amend the sanctions is taken by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine by adopting a relevant law or the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) at the suggestion of the President of Ukraine, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, the National Bank of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine- specified in the document. In the current edition of the law, only the NSDC is authorized to do so.
According to the draft law, if the decision on restrictive measures is taken by the NSDC, then it is enacted by presidential decree. Today, this also requires a special resolution of the Verkhovna Rada, adopted by the deputies during 48 hours after the president signed the decree, reports TASS
