Zelensky Signs Law to Ban Ukraine’s Opposition Parties

Kiev has adopted a law making it very easy to ban oppostion political parties purported to be “anti-Ukrainian”. And they will. This is the “democracy” we must sacrifice for. While at least some of the parties lean toward Russia, a lot of these people are Russian-Ukrainians. Does that matter?

So, how do you become anti-Ukrainian? Well, you disagree with President Zalenskyy’s imperative. It affects most of the parties, especially the main opposition party.

Ukrainian President Zelenskyy

The new law outlaws denial of the “aggression against Ukraine,” calling it an internal conflict, civil war, and so on. Any positive remarks about those deemed to be perpetrating “aggression” are prohibited as well. That includes referring to the forces of the breakaway Donetsk as Lugansk republics as “insurgents.”

THE BAN TO COME

The law simplifies the process to ban a political party. It takes a court ruling in the western city of Lviv as long as martial law continues and can’t be appealed.

In March, Ukraine’s National Security Council suspended eleven political parties deemed to be “pro-Russian.” The list included assorted minor, primarily left-wing parties, as well as Ukraine’s second-largest group ‘Opposition Platform – For Life’, led by Viktor Medvedchuk, a businessman with alleged ties to Russia. Having previously been placed under house arrest, in April of last year the politician ended up in the custody of the country’s security services.

It took place after Ukraine failed to enact the Minsk2 agreement enactment – 7 years after Germany and France brokered the agreement with Ukraine and Russia. It meant recognition of Donetsk and Lugansk as independent republics.

There is no moral, ethical or logical basis to support Ukraine, and never was since the US coup in 2014 and the following violation of agreements.

Exactly, I wish everyone would wake up re this Ukraine disaster, Zelenski has destroyed his own country at the behest of the Davos set and the American potato brained imbicile set the game in play by hysterically sending arms and talking up NATO membership having already installed an illegitimate Gov..and some even talking up placing tactical nukes in the Ukraine!! Putin had to act, would America sit by while thousands of US citizens were shot by Mexican Nazis backed by foreign powers? Probably, bad choice, but seriously? Given what was happening, would you do nothing? Putin is still open to talks in Turkey, sadly the West are not interested, the WEF West want a protracted war and will supply arms at just the right amounts to achieve that. .
All Putin ever asked for was for the terms of the Minsk Agreement to be honoured, the same agreement the UN US and NATO all signed…and then did nothing while Zelenski’s Nazis murdered tens of thousands of Donbas citizens to provoke Putin into a war to isolate him by use of propaganda and boorish Western stupidity.
Why do you “useful idiots” believe a thing Mr Potato Head says? Do you believe him when he says the economy is great? Or he is reducing the price of petrol and other goods? Do you believe him when he says there is no border crisis? Or that all of this is Trump’s fault, or Putin’s?
I could go on for many pages in this manner but I’m sure you get it…so if you agree Biden is an unmitigated liar, why do you believe him now? Does it really surprise you Zelenski is a Davos darling? Read the Minsk Agreement, and ask yourself why is it the West will not agree to the perfectly reasonable peace terms demanded by the Russians, given the West have already signed an agreement to uphold those very demands?
Sick sad world, and if you lot are going to go around believing the WEF propaganda and an insane potato headed old geza who probably doesn’t know what is actually happening anyway, just in case he accidentally spills the beans…well it will get much worse.
Do you really want a world war with Russia and China? They do…..

This should not surprise anyone…he has jailed or exiled his political opponents since stealing the elections with the help of Obama and WEF friends.
And if your TV news is correct, Zelenski should easily win an election against a party who favours Putin and Russia? Or….perhaps your TV is lying to you…and perhaps the Ukraine people might prefer to see the back of the Globalist placed dancing boy Zelenski?
Perhaps the Ukrainian people would prefer to see the back of the Azov Nazis who have killed 14,000 Donbas Russians since 2015? Sadly your TV hasn’t told you the truth at all and if you are a supporter of the Globalist Nazi supporting fascist Zelenski…perhaps you need to read, or grow a frontal cortex….do you support Trudeau? Merkal? Schwab? Obama et al? If you support Zelenski then yes, yes you do…..
