The bill on the Donbass reintegration, which is being prepared in Ukraine, supposes the replacement of the definition of "the antiterrorist operation" with the definition of "the operation for the defense of Ukraine," said Deputy Minister of Ukraine for Issues of Occupied Territories Yury Grymchak.
"The operation for the defense of Ukraine," said Grymchak in an interview with the Ukrainian bureau of Radio Svoboda on Tuesday, answering the question of how the bill calls the conflict in the east of the country. At that, he added that the concept of "war" was not used in the draft law.
The administration of the President of Ukraine is engaged in the drafting of the bill on the reintegration of Donbass. The text of the document has not yet been published.
Earlier, the representative of the president of Ukraine in the Rada, Irina Lutsenko, said that the definition of the "aggressor country" would be applied to Russia in the draft law. According to her, work on the bill is completed by 99.9%, and it is ready for registration in the parliament.
