KIEV, January 26, 11:18 /ITAR-TASS/. Deputies of Ukraine’s parliament Verkhovna Rada plan to endorse a bill, which will permit to block accounts of legal entities that are suspected of funding extremism-related activity, Ukrainian TV channel TSN reported on Sunday.
The first deputy head of the Ukrainian presidential staff, Andrey Portnov, jointly with the country’s Finance Ministry and the country’s financial watchdog have drafted a new bill, which will permit to block accounts of legal entities that are suspected of extremism. The bill is expected to be endorsed at an extraordinary parliamentary session on January 28, Ukrainian media reported.
Effective Ukrainian legislation permits to block accounts of enterprises and organisations, which law enforcement agencies and the Finance Ministry consider as terrorist, or if they promote activity of terrorists. So, institutions that will be found extremist will be added to this list.
Ukrainian media noted that the bill seeks to block any material or financial aid to illegal opposition activity.
The bill is not registered in parliament yet, but it is expected to do it on Monday, January 27.
