This was stated by the leader of the OPPOSITION BLOC Yuriy Boyko during his working visit to Luhansk oblast.
The politician explained why the OPPOSITION BLOC had not support the law on the reintegration of Donbas.
“We consider, this is the law on the separation of part of Donbas and the transformation of the situation in the east into a state of frozen conflict, and in the worst case, its aggravation,” Yuriy Boyko said.
As for the Law “On the Special Status of Local Self-Government of Donbas”, according to the Co-Chair of the faction, despite many controversial points of this law, oppositionists supported it as a symbol, a compromise step and a chance for a political settlement, restoration the infrastructure of Donbas and returning people to a peaceful life (Law No. 7164 extends the special status for one year, oppositionists insisted on 3 years - Ed.).
Yuriy Boyko noted that the OPPOSITION BLOC is the only political force that has a clear plan for restoring the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
“First, the introduction of peacemakers into the line of military operations and the stopping of shooting and killing, then the adoption of a law on special status for three years to restore the territory, then an amnesty law for people who did not commit serious crimes. After that - the restoration of control over the border, the restoration of economic relations and the establishment of a transitional administration in these territories, and in three years - elections. This plan will return peace to Ukraine and restore territorial integrity,” Yuriy Boyko underlined.
