The agreement of presidents of Ukraine and Russia Victor Yanukovych and Dmitry Medvedev concerning prolongation of stay of the Black Sea fleet (BSF) in Crimea for 25 years will be cancelled. The leader of Medzhlis the People’s Deputy of fraction «Our Ukraine — National self-defence» (OU-NS) Mustafa Dzhemilev has declared it, to the Kiev correspondent of «Rosbalt» .
The head of Medzhlis has underlined that the present decision comprises the legal contradiction. «Medzhlis… Acts it is system against basing in Sevastopol the Black Sea fleet of Russia. Basing prolongation contradicts the Constitution of Ukraine. Those transitive positions that in it are, provide preservation of the Russian naval base in Crimea only till 2017. I consider that the president has exceeded the powers and the country parliament should state an estimation to that has occurred», — Dzhemilev has declared.
«We consistently opposed basings BSF in territory of Ukraine and we continue to adhere to this point of view. It is a pity that such signing has occurred, but, I think that the parliament does not ratify the similar agreement because it contradicts the Constitution of Ukraine», — in particular, he has told.
Dzhmilev has underlined that even if the Supreme Rada of Ukraine ratifies this agreement «later it will be all the same reconsidered. After all the Constitution forbids basing of foreign military bases in our territory after 2017», — he has noted.
He also is assured that the present decision will promote split Ukraine. «Ideological split will be aggravated. Last decision brings additional intensity between supporters and opponents of the Russian fleet», — the political leader of the Crimean Tatars has told.
At the same time Dzhemilev has underlined that the Crimean Tatars do not intend to arrange large protest actions. «We are the small people and to spend large protest actions not in a condition, but we will express the point of view», — he has summed up
As it was informed, Russia and Ukraine have signed the agreement concerning stay of BSF the Russian Federation in territory of Ukraine for 25 years (till 2042) with the right of prolongation to five years if one of the parties does not declare a termination of the agreement. The size of a payment for basing of the Russian fleet on territories of Ukraine since 2017 will be increased by $3 million a year — to $100 million
Let’s note, last paragraph of item 17 of the Constitution of Ukraine says: «In territory of Ukraine the arrangement of foreign military bases is not supposed».
But as at the moment of Constitution acceptance in 1996 of stay of BSF the Russian Federation in territory of Ukraine till 2017 it has already been provided by the corresponding bilateral contract, the Ukrainian parliament has included 14th point in Transitive positions of the Organic law: «Use of existing military bases in territory of Ukraine for time stay of foreign military formations probably on a hire basis in an order defined by the international contracts of Ukraine, ratified by the Supreme Rada of Ukraine».
