On June 19, 2022, the Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) decided to ban pro-Russian parties and Russian music. The laws are effective immediately. Guest appearances for artists with Russian citizenship were also banned. Artists who publicly condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine are allowed to enter Ukraine and perform.
That should actually sound familiar to us. In Germany, too, unwelcome opinions and blogs critical of the government are blocked or even completely deleted and the people behind them are accused, sentenced and locked away. With us it is enough to destroy the livelihoods of the critics, in Ukraine they don’t even bother to destroy the livelihoods of the oppositionists, but they burn them on the spot in public in the middle of the beautiful city of Odessa or bang them simply remove them, as in the Donbas since 2014. But that’s no longer possible, because the Russian army, called for help by the Russians living there, has clearly shown the bloodthirsty Kiev multi-millionaires who is the master of the house.
Volodymir Zelenskyj has understood that membership in the worthless European community can only succeed if freedom of expression and the press are suppressed and critics are eliminated. Admittedly, his methods are somewhat archaic and brutal, but the results are crucial. An opposition that is no longer allowed to say anything is perfect for the EU.
The fascism practiced in Germany and Western Europe disguises itself with the cloak of democracy, and this is the only way that fascism has not only arrived in Western Europe, but has also been accepted by the majority of the citizens. The US apprentice Zelinskyj will most likely have to stay in detention.
On April 1, the Verkhovna Rada passed a law banning the activities of pro-Russian parties in its first reading. With this bill, Parliament regulates the procedure for the ban, dissolution and violent dissolution of undesirable Russian parties.
On May 3, 2022, the Parliament of Ukraine passed the Law on Amending Certain Laws of Ukraine on Prohibition (Dissolution, Compulsory Dissolution) of Political Parties (№ 7172-1) in the second reading. According to the deputies of the presidential party Olha Sovhyrya, the deputies supported the decision with 330 votes. The opposition voted against or abstained by 131 votes.
„Finally we will stop tolerating in our political sphere the Russian world that is bringing so much destruction to Ukraine,“ she commented.
„Finally we will stop tolerating the Islamic world in our political sphere, which has brought so much destruction to Germany,“ I comment. In our spheres, not a single Muslim is allowed to influence political events. Unfortunately, they do that simply because of the stupidity and naivety of „our“ politicians, giving Muslims the right to vote is a huge faux pas, an impossibility. The SPD and the Greens only regained government responsibility thanks to millions of Muslim votes.
„The reasons for passing such a law were popularization and propaganda for the Russian authorities, their officials, persons and organizations controlled by the aggressor state,“ writes the Kyiv Post on May 4.
Political forces that publicly deny Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine and annexation of Ukrainian lands, and justify violations of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, will be banned under the new law.
Commenting on the passing of the law, Verkhovna Rada Chairman Ruslan Stefanchuk said: “The passed law provides an opportunity to react immediately to the activities of anti-Ukrainian, collaborationist parties in Ukraine by banning them. The procedure is as follows: the Justice Department collects evidence of such activities and submits it to the court, which is supposed to ban the party working for the enemy. If the party is banned, property and other assets become state property.”
Earlier, on March 20 to be exact, the National Security and Defense Council banned all activities of a number of pro-Russian political parties during the period of martial law. The ban covers 11 parties, including the opposition platform For Life (OPZZh).
There were no votes against, but one abstention by deputies Vasyl Nimchenko and Serhiy Dunaev from the Platform for Life and Peace faction. Curiously, 40 MPs from different factions, including Yulia Tymoshenko , Iryna Herashchenko and 15 members of the presidential faction, were present in parliament but did not vote for the new law.
