KIEV, May 25. /TASS/. A Kiev district court has refused to consider a case into the lawsuit of Ukraine’s Justice Ministry on banning the country’s Communist Party, the Ukrainian State Judicial Administration said on Monday.
"The consideration of the case [on banning the political party] at the time set by the court during the May 27, 2015 court session is impossible," the administration’s website quoted a court statement.
Ukraine’s Justice Ministry and the State Registration Service of Ukraine filed the lawsuit with the Kiev district court on July 8, 2014 on banning the party’s activities on the country’s territory.
Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, on April 9 adopted a law on condemning the communist and Nazi totalitarian regimes and banned their propaganda and symbols.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed the so-called de-communisation package of four laws on May 15.
