The signing by the President of Ukraine of the law “on reintegration” is a confirmation of the Ukrainian authorities' commitment to the military solution of the conflict in Donbass. This normative act is an attempt to justify the use of the army against the people of Donbass in the past and to launch full-scale military operations in the future. Its entry into force of this law effectively neutralizes the possibility of implementing a peaceful plan for the conflict settlement, since it directly prohibits the implementation of certain political points and legalizes violence. Thus, Ukraine is in a political and legal impasse.

All civil and military officials responsible for using the army against the people of Donbass, will have to answer with the law.
