UPD: 04/28/2014 In the Crimea, the Ukrainian flag is declared a manifestation of extremism
By decision of the Crimean "prosecutor's office" signed by Natalia Poklonskaya, the flag of Ukraine hung on the building of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people in Simferopol, was recognized as a manifestation of extremism and a violation of the Federal Law "On Countering Extremist Activities".
About this in his blog on the site "Echo of Moscow" said Boris Vishnevky, deputy of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg (the Yabloko faction).
According to him, Poklonskaya announced a warning to the Mejlis, “explaining the procedure of criminal liability for violation of the specified article.” They say that the flag of Ukraine was set "for propaganda and public demonstration, which is inciting social, national hatred and has become a propaganda of exclusivity."
Announcement of the flag of Ukraine "inciting social or national hatred" and "propaganda of exclusivity" clearly demonstrates the level of legal literacy of those who are now set to follow the rule of law in the Crimea, the deputy said outraged.
“What kind of“ enmity ”and to which national or social group does the Ukrainian flag“ excite ”? As for the rest, the law on countering extremism speaks of“ promoting an exclusivity, superiority or inferiority of a person on the basis of his social, racial, national, religious or linguistic affiliation or attitudes toward religion. "
Whose superiority or inferiority, in the opinion of the Crimean prosecutor, claims the flag of Ukraine? It is clear that these delusional “warnings” have nothing to do with the law - their sole purpose is to prohibit hanging the flag of the country, of which Crimea remains from the point of view of international law and the overwhelming majority of countries of the world.
I remember that Russian flags for many years in the Crimea were hung out completely freely, and freely went with them to rallies. And no one declared these flags "symbols of extremism" and did not persecute for it. But now there are other times - entering the “Russian legal space”, where there are completely different laws. Their Crimeans very quickly feel for themselves.
When they come to their senses, it will be too late: in Russia, an attempt to realize “the right to self-determination” means landing for five years, ”stated Vishnevsky.
Riza Shevkiev, who heads the charitable foundation "Crimea", on whose balance sheet the office of the Mejlis is located, informed the BBC Ukraine that he received a warning in which the procedure for criminal liability for violation of the specified article was clarified by an official letter signed by the wanted list in Ukraine. prosecutor of the Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya.
On April 21, representatives of the “self-defense of Crimea” tore the flag of Ukraine from the building of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Simferopol. Later, employees of the Mejlis returned the flag to the site, and Mustafa Dzhemilev called what is happening in the Crimea “a fascist-type democracy”.
