KIEV, March 25. /TASS/. As Kiev is calling for continuing the war in the country’s east, the Opposition Bloc in the parliament said on Wednesday it has registered a package of bills needed for the full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
"The bills that have been registered give our country a chance for the diplomatic solution of the conflict in eastern Ukraine," the chairman of the Opposition Bloc’s parliamentary faction, Yury Boyko, said at the meeting with the representatives of the public organizations in the Kharkov region, in the country’s north-east.
"We believe that the authorities should prepare the needed bills but as they have adopted a pro-war stance, we have taken this initiative ourselves. The laws which we registered in elaboration of the Minsk agreements should be adopted by the parliament," he stressed.
The so-called peace package consists of laws on "restoring the banking system, amnesty for the participants of the conflict, social benefit payments in Donbas and other provisions stipulated in the Minsk agreements," he said.
"First of all, the adoption of such laws is essential for the country. We need to stop the deaths of people, reach sustainable peace and start restoring the destroyed Donbas infrastructure. This can be done through the Minsk agreements implementation," the politician said.
Boyko also blamed the actions of the parliamentary coalition for the fact that the "implementation of the agreements reached in Minsk has been blocked." "And if the "coalition of war" is not even able to comply with the UN resolution then the parliament needs to be dissolved," he said.
"Most likely, the coalition will break up and this autumn the parliamentary elections will also take place. This is contributed by the constant power struggle and the rivalry between the prime minister and the president," Boyko said.
