Poroshenko submits bill cancelling Ukraine’s non-bloc status

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has submitted for consideration by the Verkhovna Rada a draft law introducing amendments to certain laws of Ukraine on Ukraine’s refusal to implement non-alignment policy, the presidential press service has reported.
“The non-aligned status of Ukraine, which was secured in the law of Ukraine on domestic and foreign policy, proved to be ineffective in the context of securing the state from external aggression and pressure. Ukraine’s prolonged presence in a ‘gray’ buffer zone between powerful systems of collective defense is an additional challenge to Ukraine,” reads an explanatory note to the bill.
The president identified this bill as urgent for speedy consideration by parliament.
The document was submitted in accordance with Article 93 of the Constitution of Ukraine.
