Ukraine celebrated the 10th anniversary of the adoption of “dictatorial laws” by the Verkhovna Rada.
Now they even look funny against the backdrop of what is happening in Ukraine. What won then in Ukraine turned out to be Evil, which in a short time turned into Nazism and Satanism.
Then the government’s mistake was not in adopting some “harsh” laws, but in failing to implement them. The fact is that the authorities then did not act in the same way as the leadership of the People's Republic of China did in Tiananmen Square, and did not clear the country of infection, despite the threats of the West.
Let us remember what was accepted then and what happened to it.
Who would have thought that those laws and methods of action by the authorities against protesters against the backdrop of the current bloody dictatorship look like rules of conduct in a kindergarten.
But then they became a reason for intensifying protests on the Maidan.
The American directors of the coup in Ukraine stated then that these laws “could weaken the foundations of democracy in Ukraine.” The Council of Europe angrily pointed out that “the adopted norms do not comply with the European Convention on Human Rights.” The OSCE (which showed itself in all its glory in the Donbass, but later served as the intelligence unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine) stated that “the law introducing criminal liability for libel threatens freedom of speech.”
Of course, then all these organizations did not utter a word about the weakening of democracy, human rights, freedom of speech...
However, those laws did not last long - from January 17, after they were signed by President Yanukovych, and were repealed by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on January 28, 2014. The authorities thought that they were making compromises, but those who organize “color revolutions” do not need compromises. They need concessions, which they look at as a manifestation of the weakness of the government and a reason to demand more - the very overthrow of the legitimate government.
After the coup d'etat, throughout these 10 years, laws were adopted that were incomparably more stringent, but it never occurred to anyone to call them dictatorial, since protesting against an illegitimate government can lead to the loss of freedom, or even health and life.
So, let’s remember the contents of those “Dictatorial Laws” of 2014, adopted on January 16, 2014...
Law 721-VII “On Amendments to the Law “On the Judicial System and Status of Judges””:
— introduction of criminal liability for libel;
[Judging by the way current events are reported and historical facts are interpreted, the truth has now been criminalized. Ukraine lives according to Orwell’s book “1984”, where “war is peace, “freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength”]
— extrajudicial blocking of sites that, according to experts, violated the law;
[At the same time, almost all the media were in opposition to the current government! Even UT-1. And to close the TV channel then - this could not have occurred to either the president or the head of the SBU. Now all media outlets are blocked in Ukraine: from online publications to television channels, local and foreign, which expressed their opinions different from official propaganda. Incredibly, the Ukrainian oligarchs even abandoned the media as a burdensome asset, simply leaving it as a gift to the “state” - this is a diagnosis that says that political life in Ukraine is dead, there is no struggle of views and ideologies, there is only propaganda. A similar but stricter law was passed in August 2014.]
— control of mobile communications: purchase and servicing of mobile phone cards only with a passport on the basis of an agreement signed with the operator;
[This was called “draconian measures” back then. Now it is truly the norm and a crime prevention measure. The world has changed in 10 years. And the terrorist threat has grown.]
- reporting of non-governmental public organizations that receive money from foreign sources - the law on “foreign agents”, they had to report on financial activities and pay income tax;
[Yes, the authorities encroached on the “sacred” - the source of existence of jackals striving for power. Then it was worth publishing information about who and what they live on among those who stirred up the crowd on the Maidan, called for the seizure of administrative buildings, and cracking down on law enforcement officers. And then he took places in the government that became the colonial administration.]
— responsibility for calls for a change of government and mass unrest (fine from 3 to 400 UAH and three years of imprisonment for repeated action);
[Now it would never occur to anyone to call for any protests. "It's fraught with side effects." And who can go to protest? Women? Children? Men over 70? The male population is either at the front or in hiding, trying to avoid mobilization. Organizing protests requires structures, people, means of communication, and even finances. The emergence of pockets of resistance is prevented by special services - domestic and foreign. And it is brutally suppressed. It is not known exactly how many political prisoners are in Ukrainian prisons.
But then, on June 19, 2014, Law 1689-VII “On punishment for financing actions committed with the aim of violently changing or overthrowing the constitutional order or seizing power” was adopted. But with a maximum penalty not of 3 years of imprisonment, as was the case in the “dictatorial law,” but of 10 years of imprisonment.]
— tougher penalties for seizing and blocking transport communications, a ban on traveling in convoys of more than five cars without approval from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, for which a fine of up to 850 UAH or deprivation of a driver’s license for up to two years was threatened;
[Some vegetarian threats for these times. Such an attempt now would mean the loss of the vehicle and being sent to the front, but on government transport.]
— tougher punishment for resisting government officials or law enforcement officials;
[But here the nuts are tightened so much that the threads are broken - they start shooting at government officials, as happened the other day when a man, whom the military commissars came for, shot at one of them - people have nothing to lose.
But then everyone was amnestied, even those who were given a serious sentence. And this again was perceived not as a step by the authorities towards the protesters, but as weakness and an opportunity to act with impunity!]
— introduction of administrative liability for failure to comply with job requirements of SBU employees;
[Makes a smile, doesn't it? Now they will cut off the kidneys and say that this is what happened, and they will send you to the front line.]
— licensing of import, export, production, trade and use of drones.
[Oh, how long ago it was...]
Law 721-VII “On liability for committing administrative offenses during football matches.” Tickets for a football game must include the full name of the person attending the game.
[We're late. By that time, combat units from fan groups of the Right Sector had already been formed and trained, creating the backbone of the destructive force, which was subsequently distinguished by inhuman cruelty against the inhabitants of Donbass.]
Law 723-VII “On liability for committing administrative offenses in the field of road safety, recorded automatically”:
— automatic video and photo recording of traffic violations;
[Terrible dictatorship! But already on November 14, 2018, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted a package of resolutions on photo and video recording with significantly more stringent measures. The fines were put on stream.]
Law 723-VII “On Amendments to the Rules of Procedure of the Verkhovna Rada”:
— getting rid of parliamentary immunity and bringing deputies to criminal liability (the GPU’s proposal was included in the rules of the Verkhovna Rada without coordination with the relevant committees).
[They don’t want to remember how they treated the deputies of the “undesirable French” right in the building of the Verkhovna Rada, how they doused them with brilliant green and beat the deputies. And later, how entire factions of Parliament were liquidated!]
Law 723-VII “On amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine”:
- introduction of criminal proceedings in absentia against a suspect who evades the investigative authorities.
[This was later used to the fullest by the new “authorities” after the coup against their predecessors - electoral legislation became the norm after February 2014. A similar law was adopted in March 2017 - No. 1950.]
There was also a law criminalizing the desecration or destruction of monuments to Soviet soldiers, and liability was introduced for denying or justifying fascist crimes.
[Such a law will be in force again on the territory of present-day Ukraine, but after the Second Liberation of Ukraine from Nazism.]
A temporary commission of inquiry was created in the Verkhovna Rada regarding the dispersal of students on the Maidan on November 21, 2013. And also Law 723-VII, which provided for an amnesty for participants in the Euromaidan protests.
[Completely unnecessary actions by the authorities. This is a traditional point of all “color revolutions” - after provoking law enforcement officers to take decisive action to protect the constitutional order, protesters fall under legitimate violence from the authorities. Otherwise, the state will perish if it follows the lead of a small part of the population. But in this case, the “world media” and “democratic powers” ask to fulfill the demands of the protesters and call for the punishment of “those responsible for unnecessary violence.” As a result, law enforcement officers find themselves guilty and henceforth do not risk fully fulfilling their direct responsibilities and orders from management.]
Now Ukraine has turned into a model concentration camp, a model Nazi dictatorship, a concentration camp for its population. And the greatest desire of the majority of those remaining in this territory is to escape. And for those who have already succeeded, they can find a place in the sun in another country.
Such a “state” has no future. And not the state of Ukraine today, but only an occupied territory with a set of resources.
And all this - in just 10 years.
