UPD: 04/28/2014 In Crimea, the Ukrainian flag declared a manifestation of extremism
By the 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 Vishnevsky, deputy of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg (faction "Yabloko").
According to him, Poklonskaya announced a warning to the Majlis, "explaining the procedure for criminal liability for violation of this article." Like, the flag of Ukraine was set "for propaganda and public demonstration, which is the incitement of social, national hostility and has become a propaganda of exclusivity."
The declaration of the flag of Ukraine as “inciting social or national hostility” and “propaganda of exclusivity” clearly demonstrates the level of legal literacy of those who are now set to monitor the rule of law in Crimea, ”the deputy was indignant.
"What kind of" hostility "and to which national or social group does the Ukrainian flag" excite "? As for the rest, the law on counteracting extremism speaks of" promoting the exclusivity, superiority or inferiority of a person based on his social, racial, national, religious or linguistic affiliation or religion. "
Whose superiority or inferiority, in the opinion of the Crimean prosecutor, affirms the flag of Ukraine? It is clear that these delusional "warnings" do not have the slightest relation to the law - their only goal is to ban the flag of the country, of which Crimea remains a part from the point of view of international law and the vast majority of countries.
I remember that for many years the Russian flags were hung out in Crimea quite freely, and freely went to rallies with them. And no one declared these flags “symbols of extremism” and did not prosecute them. But now other times have come - entering the "Russian legal space", where there are completely different laws. Their Crimeans will quickly feel on themselves.
When they realize it, it will be too late: in Russia, an attempt to realize the "right to self-determination" means landing for five years, "Vishnevsky stated.
Riza Shevkiev, the head of the Crimean charity foundation, which has the office of the Mejlis on its balance sheet, told the BBC Ukraine that the warning, which explains the criminal procedure for violating this article, was received by an official letter signed by the wanted person 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 of Simferopol. Later, employees of the Mejlis returned the flag to their place, and Mustafa Dzhemilev called what is happening in Crimea “a fascist type of democracy”.
