KIEV, May 21. /TASS/. Chairman of ukraine's Opposition Bloc parliamentary faction Yury Boyko has accuses the parliament coalition of hindering implementation of the Minsk agreements.
"The entire world community has recognized that the only way of resolving the military conflict in Ukraine is full implementation of the Minsk accords. The Opposition Bloc has repeatedly insisted on that, preparing 10 relevant draft laws to be considered by the parliament. Unfortunately, today the Minsk agreements are not abided by. This is outright sabotage on the part of the coalition," the politician said.
Commenting on the draft resolution on Ukraine’s withdrawal from certain obligations of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights, Boyko noted that the Opposition Bloc would not back this law. "This resolution will not allow the citizens whose rights have been infringed to apply to the European Court of Human Rights. Thus, the majority of such citizens will be deprived of an opportunity to protect their rights, so, we are against it," Boyko said.
