Chronology of events
UPD: 16/01/2014 Everything for the sake of the budget. PhotoReporting from the rally of supporters of the Party of Regions under the Rada
While in the hall of the Verkhovna Rada, the people's deputies "accepted the first blood" to the 2014 State Budget, a many-thousand rally of the Party of Regions took place under the walls of the parliament and the Mariinsky Park, in which Prime Minister Mykola Azarov took part.
UPD: 16/01/2014 Ukrainian mobile operators have reacted to the initiative of the Rada to sell SIM-cards on the passport
Mobile operators Kyivstar and MTS were skeptical about the initiative of the Rada, which passed a law obliging Ukrainians to buy SIM-cards on their passports.
By the will of deputies to buy a SIM-card, Ukrainians will have to enter into an appropriate agreement with the operator. This is stated in the Law on Telecommunications, which was introduced by People's Deputy Vadim Kolesnichenko (Party of Regions) and was adopted in the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday.
So, the company Kyivstar called on President Viktor Yanukovych to veto the law, said Andrei Osadchuk, director of regulatory and legal support, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
The new law, which, among other things, implies the introduction of amendments to the Law on Telecommunications, requires discussion with all market participants and finalization. The introduction of additional licensing in the telecommunications market - Internet access services - introduces new organizational and financial burdens, contradicts the declared for the liberalization and deregulation of the economy declared by the president and the government of Ukraine. We also do not understand the mechanism for implementing the prohibition of access to certain Internet resources through an expert decision. It should be noted that the institution of relevant experts is not described by Ukrainian legislation. We believe that any ban can be imposed solely by a court decision!
Regarding the issue of introducing a rule on the sale of SIM-cards by passports, he said that all operators had previously provided services on the basis of contracts, which, in particular, are also a public offer contract.
Both in the current and in the newly voted bill, the subscriber has a choice of the way of his identification when concluding a contract with the operator, including through the provision of passport data. In general, voluntary subscriber identification can positively influence the market, for example, reducing the level of fraud, and serve as additional protection for the subscriber from unauthorized actions of third parties!
The company said that to date, the vast majority of subscribers (about 90%) are prepaid subscribers, accordingly, they do not conclude contracts with operators.
Our entire system of sales and customer service is organized taking into account this demand structure. While we did not have time to analyze the content of the bill in detail, there are already many questions. In particular, how to serve the population of villages and small settlements where there are no operator shops? Mandatory sale of start packages on passports limits the availability of services, for which, for example, villagers will have to travel to the city. And even in the city, the starting package will not be as easy to buy as it is now. Operators will have to completely rebuild the sales system that has been developing in the market for years. It will take time and additional costs!
In addition, according to the company, even the introduction of this rule does not exclude the possibility for those wishing to purchase the package anonymously, bypassing this condition.
As the experience of foreign countries shows, wherever such a system is used, there is a black market where it is easy to buy a starter pack on forged documents or someone else's name. Just it is more expensive!
UPD: 16/01/2014 Yanukovych signed five resonant laws passed by the parliament on Thursday - media
President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych signed all five laws passed by the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday, January 16, and submitted to the administration of the Head of State on the same day, Zerkalo Nedeli writes. Ukraine.
So, we are talking about:
We add that on the official website of the president this information has not yet appeared.
Earlier it was reported that, among other things, MPs banned participation in meetings, rallies, demonstrations and other mass events in a mask, helmet or using other methods of camouflage that interfere with the identification of a person .
As you know, the Independent Media Trade Union of Ukraine, the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine and the Commission on Journalistic Ethics appealed to the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych with a demand to veto the changes to the law on the judicial system and the status of judges and procedural laws on additional measures to protect the security of citizens.
UPD: 16/01/2014 From now on Ukrainians will be able to purchase SIM-cards only on the passport
To buy a SIM card, Ukrainians will have to enter into an appropriate agreement with the operator.
This is stated in the Law on Telecommunications, which was introduced by People's Deputy Vadim Kolesnichenko (Party of Regions) and was adopted at today's voting in the Verkhovna Rada.
It is reported that the text of the document introduced the concept of an identification telecommunication card - a means used to identify the final equipment of the subscriber in the network (SIM-card, USIM-card, etc.). Provision of telecommunications services using such a card is carried out on the basis of an agreement between the telecommunications operator and the consumer.
Recall that the government service of special communication and information protection in September 2012 initiated the adoption of such a bill on the instructions of the government in the interests of law enforcement. Then the head of the State Service Gennady Reznikov stated that the introduction of such a rule does not violate human rights and will help in the work of law enforcement.
