People’s Deputy Kolesnichenko: The state’s duty is to preserve peace
The state’s duty is to preserve the fragile peace in the country, said the People’s Deputy from the Party of Regions Vadim Kolesnichenko at the ceremonial meeting held in Simferopol to mark the 23rd anniversary of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
“I am deeply convinced that on January 16 in Ukraine we adopted major laws that will determine the future of our state for years to come,” said Kolesnichenko. “These are the laws that currently govern what can be done and what can not. If we have legislated the fact that you can not call for mutiny, that you can not divide people on linguistic, ethnic, religious or other grounds — is this attack on human rights? It is the duty of the state, to preserve the fragile peace in our country,” noted Kolesnichenko.
Vadim Kolesnichenko thanked the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of Crimea, the Crimean parliament for their support during the political conflict and said he is confident that the current government will not allow a coup in Ukraine.
“You were the first in Ukraine to show support when it became clear that in Kiev there is no civilian protest action but rather a neo-Nazi coup. I am sure, the government will not allow the state to implement a plan to seize power in our country”, said Kolesnichenko talking to the Crimean parliamentarians.
