Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard 02:10:30 15/04/2017 politnavigator.net The Ministry of Justice of Ukraine behaves like the enemy of the Ukrainian State, taking the initiative fraught with catastrophic consequences for the country. This was stated at a press conferences in Kiev to the correspondent of Politnavigator by the director of the Ukrainian institute of the analysis and management of politics Ruslan Bortnik, who called the proposal of the Minister of Justice of Ukraine Pavel Petrenko to abolish all Soviet laws existing in Ukraine “wild surrealism”. “The abolition of all Soviet laws will mean the abolition of Ukraine, because the 1990 declaration of independence, both the act of declaration of independence of 1991 as well as the documents on the creation of the UN, and documents on the admission of Crimea, Bukovina, Transcarpathia, and even Lvov in the structure of Ukraine belongs to the decisions of the Soviet authorities. All these decisions were made by the Supreme Council of the USSR,” said the expert. “It will mean the legal collapse of our statehood. Ukraine is the legal successor of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in all its senses. And the attempt to carry out any other successorship — from Ukrainian People’s Republic, Polesia sech [a branch of UPA – ed]— will lead to catastrophic consequences for our state. What the Ministry of Justice does is the most striking example of the work of a fifth column — separatists, enemies of Ukraine, it can’t be characterised in any other way,” summarized Bortnik.
