The Verkhovna Rada has registered a draft law on amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine concerning strengthening of responsibility for public denial of the temporary occupation of the Ukrainian territories by the Russian Federation. The bill was proposed by the MP Viktor Baloha.
- The project provides for changes to the law of Ukraine "On ensuring the rights and freedoms of citizens and legal regime in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine" and defines it unlawful to publicly deny the temporary occupation of the Ukrainian territories by the Russian Federation- the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, as well as to circulate materials with corresponding content, according to a statement on the website of the United Center Party, headed by Baloha.
Under the bill the MP has already submitted to the committees the Section 110 is to enter the Criminal Code to regulate the issue concerning the fact that the Ukrainian people do not recognize the temporary occupation of the peninsula.

According to the press service of the Party, the purpose of this bill is to protect the national interests of Ukraine, as well as to prevent the cases when Uktraine’s sovereignty may be publicly disregarded.
