Here are milestones of the week by UNIAN correspondent Eugene Magda.
Unian correspondent identified the most important events of the previous weeks.
The so-called ‘vegetable voting’ in the self-proclaimed DNR and LNR on November 2 forced Ukrainian government to abolish the ‘Donbas laws’ that they had adopted with such difficulties [the voting is called vegetable because on election day terrorists sold vegetables from Russian humanitarian convoy near polling stations].
The Central Electoral Commission has finished calculation of votes for party lists, however, there remain some ‘hot points’ in electoral districts. This does not prevent creation of coalition puzzle which consists of experienced parliamentarians and ambitious newcomers.
According to Magda, the peace plan of Petro Poroshenko received a painful strike from the Kremlin puppets from the self-proclaimed DNR and LNR with their voting in the regions uncontrolled by Ukrainian government. The speed with which newly elected leaders Zakharchenko and Plotnitskiy were ‘inaugurated’ let us suppose that Moscow promised to the leaders of the self-proclaimed republics more that just ‘respect to the results of will expression’. However, on the eve of summit G-20 Vladimir Putin does not play with his politic muscles.
Ukrainian government again had to tactically react to Russian strategy of transformation of our country into a failed state. During meeting of National Security and Defense Council Petro Poroshenko insisted on abolition of the so-called Donbas laws with the same enthusiasm they had been pushed through the Parliament in mid-September [Donbas laws are law on special status of Donbas and amnesty law]. Eugene Magda underlines that the ones who critique the president should not forget that after defeat at Ilovaisk [at the end of summer] defense possibilities of our army were not great. ‘I want to believe that the situation has changed for better’, – writes Magda adding that in Donbas there continues accumulation of armored vehicles and fighters. Even not too vigilant OSCE observers have spotted them.
