KIEV, June 22. /TASS/. A group of Ukrainian parliamentarians will shortly submit to parliament a bill seeking the return of capital punishment in the country for the duration of a military operation, parliamentarian Yuri Bereza told Ukrainian UNN news agency on Monday.
"We have not submitted a bill as of yet, as my group is readying it. There are certain disputable issues in it," said Bereza, noting that the bill would be in place only as long as a military operation continued.
He has repeatedly said he is in favor of reenactment of capital punishment. "If a couple of death penalties had been applied for treason against the Fatherland, we would have had no corruption at all," he said in earlier remarks.
A moratorium on the death penalty was first imposed in 1995, but stayed in place for just a few months. A new moratorium was declared in 1997. The abolition of capital punishment is compulsory for the Council of Europe member countries.
