Vitaliy Bezgin, a deputy from the Servant of the People faction, asks representatives of the executive branch of Ukraine to urgently respond to the action of the Russian government, which prohibits Ukrainian citizens from owning land in occupied Crimea.
“Putin’s new action is aimed at banning the right of land ownership in Crimea to non-Russian citizens. That is, those Crimeans who refused to obtain a Russian passport are now even more restricted in their rights. A new stage of pressure … He quickly turned to the executive because Ukraine needs a quick diplomatic reaction to these events, «Bezgin wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
He unveiled a scan of the deputy’s appeal to the Deputy Prime Minister — Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Aleksey Reznikov, Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba and Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in Crimea Anton Korinevich, in which he asks to protect the constitutional right of citizens to property, to respond to this fact and introduce the position of Ukraine to the international community and inter-parliamentary organizations.
In the appeal, Bezgin notes that by a decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin dated March 20, 2020, it was established that in the Crimea and Sevastopol “citizens of Ukraine (foreigners) from the date of the official publication of this document are prohibited from owning land plots”.
