Democracy In Action: Ukraine Adopts Law To Send Russians To Internment Camps In Case Of "Aggression"

The Ukrainian Parliament is considering amendments to the 1992 law “On the Security Service of Ukraine”. Specifically, this bill refers to the internment of all citizens of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine.

The Russians in Ukraine are subject to detention and internment when the SBU switches to a special regime of service.

According to the bill, during a special period, the SBU is obliged to “take measures to identify citizens of a country that threatens to attack or carries out aggression against Ukraine, citizens who pose a threat to national security in connection with this aggression.”

After receiving notifications from the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) about the Russians, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine decides the issue of their internment in Ukraine “taking into account the real and potential threats to the national security of Ukraine.”

According to the draft law, special places – internment camps – should be created to accommodate interned Russians in Independent.

Local authorities, the Ministry of Ukraine for Veterans and Occupied Territories, and security forces are involved in organizing these camps and placing interned Russians there. The bill envisages amending the laws on the relevant authorities.

The bill submitted to the Parliament should also change the content of the 2000 law “On Defense”. The main military law of the country explains how an interned foreigner (that is, a Russian) differs from a prisoner of war.

“Internees mean citizens of a state subject to detention and forced placement, which threatens Ukraine with an attack or carries out aggression against Ukraine. The decision to cancel internment is made immediately after the end of hostilities and the decree of the President of Ukraine on the abolition of martial law, or in the absence of real grounds for internment. Prisoners of war are understood as persons falling under the categories indicated in Article 4 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War of August 12, 1949,” the bill outlines.

The delivery of internees and prisoners of war to places of their forced placement is carried out by the executive authorities responsible for transport and mail.

The delivery of Russians to internment camps and prisoners of war should be carried out without the involvement of road transport, the bill says. In other words, by rail or on foot, under a strict armed escort.

At the same time, the bill stipulates that the treatment of internees and prisoners of war must be carried out in compliance with international humanitarian laws (all knows well what kind of ‘international law’ the Kive regime adopts: illegal detentions, killings and tortures).

Convoy of the internees to the camps, as well as the search for the Russians who escaped from the camps, are carried out by the National Police. The National Guard protects the camps. The laws on the military police, the National Police and the National Guard are being amended accordingly.

The dehumanization of ethnic Russians and Russian citizens in Ukraine on the legal level goes together with the full-scale propaganda campaign aimed against all people and organizations that use Russian language or associate themselves with the Russian culture or the Russian-speaking world. These actions of the Kiev regime can be easily observed in all spheres of the life: from political to religious questions. In these conditions, the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) and a few remaining independent media outlets and political organizations face regular attacks and the increasing pressure.

An explanatory note to the package of amendments was drawn up by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Taran.

The authors of the package itself are Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal, People’s Deputy from European Solidarity and former Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Ivanna Klimpush-Tsitsnadze, and other deputies of the Ukrainian Parliament.

This activity demonstrates that the Kiev regime prepares for a new attempt of offensive against the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics in eastern Ukraine. It seems that the recent war in Nagorno-Karabakh triggered a new burst of activity in the Ukrainian “war party”, which was joined by the majority of the ruling party of President Volodymyr Zelensky.

After all, Azerbaijan made a successful attempt to return “the lands occupied by the aggressor state Armenia at the end of the last century.”

It is likely that the Kiev government is preparing for a military attack on the territories it lost in the previous years.

And it is preparing measures to cleanse these territories from the unreliable population. And this is the main “Caucasian firebrand” that flew into Ukrainian politics from the Karabakh fire. Kiev likely imagines itself as Azerbaijan, Russia as Armenia, and the independent Eastern Ukrainian republics as Nagorno-Karabakh.

But even with such a distribution of roles, Ukrainian leaders should remember that the Artsakh Defense Army, losing cities and positions, “held” the Azerbaijani troops for a month, causing them significant harm. And this despite the fact that Ankara stood behind Baku, and Karabakh was left to fend for itself: the liberal Nikol Pashinyan not only destroyed the command and control of the troops, but also deprived Artsakh of the supply of ammunition.

In the conditions of the east of Ukraine, as the experience of the old days has shown, the insurgents will not have a shortage of supplies, weapons, ammunition and “professional volunteers”: during the past exacerbations it was called the “North Wind”.
