This draft law might result to the event, when the European Union and other international partners of Ukraine will have a court order to remove the sanctions applied to Yanukovych and other leading members of his regime. The project involves a discriminatory approach of the criminal law to individuals and therefore violates the fundamental human rights and contradicts the European Convention on Human Rights. This may be a reason for declaring the prosecution of these individuals as political and in violation of the requirements of law. In fact, the Ukrainian law already has the instruments which would allow to confiscate the property of Yanukovych and others after their conviction in absentia. Therefore, it is important to focus on mere implementation of the relevant laws.
