President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed a law on the de-Sovietization of the country’s legislation. This was announced on Friday, May 6, by the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Ruslan Stefanchuk on his Facebook page (owned by the Meta corporation, recognized as extremist in the Russian Federation).

“President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed the law “On the de-Sovietization of the legislation of Ukraine”. I thank all my colleagues, people’s deputies, who helped develop this law and voted for its adoption,” Stefanchuk said.

Earlier, on April 1, the Rada adopted a law expanding the list of grounds for banning “pro-Russian parties” in the country. It was noted that it includes the popularization or propaganda of bodies or officials from Russia, as well as the recognition of the legitimacy of Russia’s conduct of a special operation. The law provides for the seizure of property and assets in favor of the state of representatives of those parties that the Ukrainian authorities accuse of having links with Russia.

Earlier, on March 19, it was reported that the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine stopped the work of a number of opposition parties during martial law. Among them are Opposition Platform – For Life, Opposition Bloc, Left Opposition, Shariy’s Party, Nashi, Union of Left Forces and a number of others. After that, Vadim Rabinovich, co-chairman of the Opposition Platform, announced that the party was suspending its activities.

Commenting on this decision, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin noted the next day that by banning parties, including parliamentary ones, Zelensky made a big mistake. By his decision, he split the society, instead of continuing the dialogue with party representatives, the parliamentarian said.

On February 24, Russia launched an operation to protect the civilian population of Donbass. Moscow explained that the tasks of the special operation included demilitarization and denazification, the implementation of which is necessary to ensure the security of Russia. The decision was made against the background of aggravation in the region as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military. The authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics announced the evacuation of residents to the Russian Federation, and on February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognizing the independence of the DPR and LPR.
