KIEV, May 18. /TASS/. The Ukrainian authorities have once again shown that they want no peace and consent in the society by adopting the package of the so-called decommunisation laws, the Opposition Bloc faction in the country’s parliament said on Monday.
The authorities are "driving a wedge" among the citizens, dividing them into the "right" and "wrong" ones and setting the people of various views and generations at loggerheads, the bloc says.
"Instead of making every efforts for overcoming hostility and hatred and searching for ways towards reconciliation and saving thousands of lives, the officials continue playing their political games trying to ‘tar everyone with the same brush’ and imposing consensus by force," the opposition says.
The Opposition Bloc protests against the de-communisation laws and launches an all-national campaign of protest against "the threat of the nationalist dictatorship of the coalition of war."
The opposition promises to turn to the Constitutional Court to revoke these laws saying that they "violate the basic principles of democracy and constitutional system of the country."
"We demand the observance of the democratic principles, namely civil liberties and the right to freely express their views and beliefs for each Ukrainian citizen," the Opposition Bloc said.
The package of decommunization laws adopted on April 9 and April 23 includes four documents, namely the laws on condemning the communist and national-socialist totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and banning the use of their symbols. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has strongly defended these laws.
