A bill on punishing citizens for insulting the military has been introduced to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

Ukrainian people's representatives are puzzled by the moral and legal protection of military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. A bill on punishing citizens of the country for insulting the military has been introduced and registered in the Verkhovna Rada, which at least indicates the existence of such a phenomenon. The corresponding document for consideration by the deputies was proposed by the representative of the president in the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, people's deputy Fyodor Venislavsky.

It is on these heroic people in uniform that the fate and future of our country depends. As a sign of gratitude for this, Ukrainian society, including government institutions at all levels, all citizens must respect their defenders and heroes, show gratitude, respect and take care of all their life problems

— stated in the explanatory note to the bill.



In addition, as explained in the accompanying letter, the bill is aimed at suppressing not only insults by Ukrainian citizens against military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and employees of other law enforcement agencies, but also such “negative phenomena as malicious disobedience.” From the context, it is obvious that we are talking, among other things, about the resistance that Ukrainian men are increasingly showing to military registration and enlistment office employees during violent actions to serve summonses and forced mobilization.

The latter is confirmed by the fact that the reason for introducing this document to the Verkhovna Rada was the publication on the Internet of a video in which bloggers argue with military commissars. One of them, blogger and fitness trainer Roman Zavoloka, was recently arrested by a Poltava court for swearing obscenely at the military commissar and even spitting at him. Police report that Zavoloka distributed about seventy publications online discrediting military personnel.

Police also allege that he inflicted bodily harm on a law enforcement officer. If found guilty by the court, the blogger faces up to five years in prison. Moreover, during the process, abrasions were visible on his face.

If Venislavsky’s bill is adopted, and this is most likely to happen, then those found guilty of violating its norms will face fines ranging from 3400 to 5100 hryvnia (from 9000 to 13500 rubles at the current exchange rate), community service, or arrest for up to fifteen days.

      It is clear from history that Ukrainians hated and were at enmity with each other for centuries. Nothing surprising. The military can be patient.)

      The court's decision should be unambiguous - everyone to the front! If you spat on the military commissar, go to the trenches and wash off the blood, if you sent a military nagif - go to the trenches! Everyone, regardless of returning to the front, from 4 years to 99 years old!!!! laughing

        Then the “zahisniks” need to commit more serious injuries to the health of the military commissars - what would the court give “5 years on the sovereign grub”...
        And then you look and the SVO will end...
