Rada propose to arrange the occupied Crimea A full blockade

Verkhovna Rada introduced a bill amending the Law of Ukraine "On ensuring the rights and freedoms of citizens and legal regime of the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine", the result of which will be performed complete blockade of goods and toughened the uncontrollable movement of people and areas of Ukraine, Donetsk and settlements Lugansk regions, as well as in the annexed Crimea.

The initiator of the bill is Igor Lapin. The co-authors - another 13 people's deputies of the three factions of the coalition - the "People's Front", "Petro Poroshenko Block" and the Radical Party Lyashko.

The project is in its name implies "greater control over the movement of persons and goods (goods) through the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine." "In fact, we are talking about a complete cessation of the supply of goods (goods) to the occupied territories and from there, with the exception of humanitarian aid only under the supervision of specially delegated representatives of the OSCE and with the participation of the International Committee of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies", - the author notes in ZN.UA .

Entry to the occupied territories and leaving them with the citizens of Ukraine, foreigners and stateless persons will be "allowed only by special permission through the control points of entry and exit in the manner determined by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine."

In connection with the proposed changes in the law, some experts have given ZN.UA on this account their recommendations and observations. Olga SKRYPNIK, co-chairman of the Crimean Human Rights Commission considers that a clear plus in the project is only in the part of the cancellation of the law on SEZ, which in addition to corruption and discrimination has spawned as Ukrainian citizens on a territorial basis - Crimeans become non-residents, and the introduction of special permits only further break ties with the peninsula. Also, a human rights activist sees no mechanism for implementing rules on the delivery of humanitarian supplies to the Crimea under the auspices of international organizations.

Lawyer Sergei Zayats, an expert GO "Regional Centre for Human Rights", he said that the legal equalization of Crimea and Donbas looks justified, and fears that as a result of the capacity of Ukraine finally lose control of the situation in the Crimea, and its citizens will be deprived of even a weak one protection which still remains possible.

However, Yuri Smelyanskiy, expert of "Independence of Foreign Affairs" does not agree with the linearity requirements of the application to comply with all the rights with respect to the inhabitants of the occupied Crimea and Donbas. "The introduction of access control and blockade of supplies of goods - is not twisting the lid on the jar and landing on her tap - the mechanism of regulation of entry and exit. Including resources in exchange for respect for human rights in the occupied territories. And before talking about possible restrictions of rights, we have to honestly answer the question: What comes first - the territorial integrity of the state, its security and the ability to repel an armed aggression or the rights of certain groups of people, caught up in the occupation? Bearing in mind that the real levers of influence on the occupier in terms of human rights protection lacking, "- said the expert.

It is worth noting that there is no disagreement among experts regarding the need to abolish the law on FEZ "Crimea", are merely different options for conservation of useful rules that it still contains. In particular, those relating to the withdrawal of the business and the evacuation of citizens from the occupied territories, the release of mortgage payments, taxes, etc. Just cancel the current law and to set the time for the Cabinet to prepare a new (as well as schemes for lobbyists) experts do not advise - it is better to rules governing economic relations with the Crimea and Donbas uncontrolled, to amend the law on the occupied territories, or package to take appropriate special law.
