Constitution of Ukraine: what remains of the Basic Law


The press service of the ruling party in Ukraine, the Servant of the People party, announced its readiness to submit to the public at the beginning of next week a plan for public discussion of the changes being prepared in the Ukrainian Constitution. According to the available information, it is exclusively a question of “decentralization of power”, the solution of which today in Kiev they try, among other things, to pass off for the implementation of the political part of the Minsk agreements. However, is it only worth making these changes to the Basic Law of Ukraine?


Perhaps, one should start with this: the desire of the Ukrainian authorities to replace with some incomprehensible, abstract and vague idea of ​​“decentralization” the absolutely specific demand for granting Donbass a special status, in no case can be considered the fulfillment of the political part of those agreements that are the basis of the negotiation process - that in the "Minsk" format, that in the "Norman". The Russian side has repeatedly stated this to the Ukrainian, but, apparently, was never heard. Kiev can arbitrarily “decentralize”, “federalize” (in the proper sense of these terms) and perform any other similar actions, but this will not bring him any closer to resolving the conflict in the East.

This becomes especially clear if we take into account the fact that, in the guise of talk about "decentralization," some forces are trying to push through the Constitution, which in the future will pose great problems for the country. For example, the People's Deputy from Poroshenko’s “European Solidarity” Ahtem Chiygoz demanded for a day to add a clause on “recognition of the right of the Crimean Tatar people to national-territorial autonomy”, and not just anywhere, but in Crimea. Such a “lawmaking” will certainly not end in anything good.

However, it is high time to admit the obvious: the Ukrainian Constitution adopted back in 1996 for today practically does not correspond to the life realities of the country by a maximum of 10%. Over the past years, representatives of the oligarchic clans have cut and redrawn it at their discretion, trying to strengthen their influence in power or weaken the position of their opponents. Various “transitional”, “temporary” and other provisions were introduced, which were subsequently repealed. However, is it possible today to seriously talk about the implementation in the country of the main, fundamental constitutional principles?

If you think about it - in no case. How to be in a country where “wrong” beliefs are killed and “right” views on history, religion and the like things are imposed by order of the state with articles 34 and 35, guaranteeing on paper freedom of thought and speech, worldview and religion? What can be said about article 10, which guarantees, even under the leadership of the Ukrainian, “free development, use and protection” of all other languages, Russian above all? How true are the prohibitions on the creation of armed formations declared in the Constitution that are not prescribed by law? And what about the sale of land announced by Zelensky and his associates, which, if implemented, will erase not one or two of the provisions of the “fundamental law”?

With the rights and freedoms of citizens, and even worse. Public policy aimed at rapidly reducing the sphere of education and the new law on it - is it constitutional? The complete commercialization of healthcare and the rejection of free medicine also do not really fit in with a number of articles in this document. Regarding the “right to work”, “to an adequate standard of living for a citizen and his family” it is better to remain silent at all.

The unconstitutional coups hiding under the definition of "maidan" is another factor in the complete degradation of the constitutional system, an indicator that, in fact, nothing remains of the Basic Law and respect for it.

Instead of arranging something unnecessary and nothing essentially changing the show with “decentralization”, the issue of the Ukrainian Constitution today should be resolved in the most cardinal way. Either to rewrite the Basic Law in accordance with the antisocial and anti-state policies that are currently being implemented in the country, which will undoubtedly cause a lively reaction in the Venice Commission, or ... change the actions of the authorities so that they at least to some extent consistent with the words recorded in article 3 of the Constitution, proclaiming the "highest value" of a person, his life and health, honor and dignity.

      In Ukraine, the theater of the absurdity rules the ball. The system of power in the localities will not change, corruption, theft is the goal of all deputies, until people start taking the powers that be forks, they themselves will ruin the country.

      Suppose that the same thing happens here, with the only difference being that there are countless open spaces and fossils, that is, the field for robbery is inexhaustible.
      And conversations about Ukraine remind me of the congress of people's deputies in the late USSR, when Sergey waved the microphones: the deputy is standing near the microphone turned off, and Sergey waved told him, and you on what question, then on the 5th, humpback, aah, you are 5 th, and we are already discussing the 9th ......
      In short, the topic of Ukraine is no longer interesting and does not work, we have our own best people, but Russian affairs and rewriting of our Constitution, for the sake of the ruling system, is relevant!

        In general, you are right - tired of the order. But yesterday, a note appeared about how the judicial authorities of the Ruins intend to deal with the odious Valtsman:

        Here, too, we should soon have a constitutional referendum ... what kind of amendments should we approve ... I am not vkurse ... and grandmothers do not even know about this fact ... but they will vote. The village ... 270 km to the city ... I’ll dig through the Internet for understanding and not the fact that I understand the deep meaning of fuss, and the local population is simply on the principle: the party said it was necessary, the Komsomol answered ...
        Bottom line, we are not very different then .... although I want to think ...

        The immunity of the former Presidents has already been enshrined in the federal law “On Guarantees to the President of the Russian Federation, who has ceased to exercise his powers, and to members of his family,” according to which the President, who has ceased his powers, cannot be held accountable for acts committed during his tenure as head of state. The ex-president cannot be detained, arrested, searched, interrogated or searched if this is done as part of the proceedings related to the exercise of his powers. That’s all right, life senators may appear in Russia - members of the upper house of parliament with powers not limited by no time except death. Such an initiative was introduced by a group of State Duma deputies and members of the Federation Council, and the profile committee of the State Duma has already approved this proposal. All immunity of all ranks and regalia, from the president to the chairman of the collective farm, should be secured for life ... Then ... fellow

      Well, why then immediately to hard labor? There are examples of religious tolerance in history. In the Ottoman Empire, this was solved simply, elegantly and with humor - the faithful paid this tax voluntarily, and the Gentiles, the same thing, only necessary wink

            I sincerely wish you success and good health. Besides jokes. But imagine that a person with decayed teeth and halitosis (this is not about the author) gives a lecture and the importance of dental care and cites another person with broken teeth as a negative example. And it seems that everything correctly says how convincing such a lecturer will be?

                Yes, of course! Who argues. But where does the "spread rot." Well, take care of your teeth, not strangers. And then a sparkling smile will be the best proof of rightness, and not someone else's rotten teeth.

                    You would be more careful about SVD. Here in Penza, and for "nothing" for 18 years soldered. Although for "nothing" they just can. And I get it. You were embarrassed by the word "nonsense." Well, not "nonsense." "The cognitive dissonance". It will be better.
