В Україні запрацював електронний реєстр професійних медичних оглядів – МОЗ

З вересня 2018 року дані про медичні огляди для представників певних професій мають зберігатися в єдиній електронній системі, повідомляють у міністерстві охорони здоров’я.

Згідно з заявою МОЗ, водії, освітяни, студенти, працівники громадського харчування та інших галузей, які мусять проходити медичні огляди, робитимуть це виключно в закладах охорони здоров’я. При цьому результати оглядів будуть зберігати в єдиному електронному реєстрі.

«З часом єдиний реєстр медичних оглядів буде інтегровано до системи «Електронне здоров’я». А вже зараз працює мобільний додаток «Медичні огляди», з допомогою якого контролюючі органи можуть швидко перевірити легітимність конкретного медогляду», – додають у міністерстві.

В міністерстві сподіваються, що така новація зробить неможливим використання підроблених довідок та санітарних книжок.



Kushner Cos. Unpaid NY Fines: $500,000 and Counting

The Kushner family real estate firm has amassed more than half a million dollars in unpaid fines for various New York City sanitation and building violations, much of that bill incurred while President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner was running the company.

City figures compiled for The Associated Press by a tenant watchdog group show that most of the fines, $350,000, stretched over the past five years. And just last month the company was fined $210,000 for filing false construction documents.

The hundreds of violations in dozens of its buildings ranged from the seemingly minor, “loose rubbish,” to the serious, such as not getting permits for electrical work or failing to notify authorities of work that could disturb asbestos. Most of the fines were for a few hundred dollars apiece. But in many cases the company failed to show up for required court hearings, triggering additional penalty fines atop interest payments that allowed the bill to grow.

“This is a company that will cut corners at any cost, even if it comes at the expense of its residents and the rule of law,” said Aaron Carr, executive director of Housing Rights Initiative, which compiled the data.​

​Kushner: tally misleading

The Kushner Cos. said the tally is misleading because many of the fines are actually the fault of tenants illegally renting their apartments through Airbnb, and businesses in its buildings not cleaning up properly. It said the fines for illegal renting alone total $110,000.

“Every significant property owner in New York gets fined at some point for something and a snapshot at any point in time does not tell the whole story,” the Kushner Cos. said in a statement. It added that it has made good on hundreds of other fines totaling nearly $600,000 over the same five years.

The city’s $210,000 penalty against the Kushner Cos. last month came after an AP report in March that the company filed dozens of applications for construction permits claiming it had no low-paying, rent-stabilized tenants when, in fact, it had hundreds. Those false filings allowed the company to avoid tougher city oversight to keep landlords from harassing tenants to get them to move out so they can raise rents.

The Kushner Cos. said it will fight this latest penalty in court. It doesn’t have to be paid until that fight is settled.​

Court hearings ignored

The data on the company’s unpaid, older bills show it was fined after not appearing at scheduled court hearings more than 450 times stretching back to early 2013, much of that for sanitation violations for dirty sidewalks and not disposing of trash properly. In these “no-show” cases, the city typically doubles or triples the amount originally fined. 

Any unpaid fines within 60 days of a judgment by a court or a “no show” at a hearing is kicked to the city’s Department of Finance, which then can tap private agencies to collect the debt. A department spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment from the AP.

Asked about the Kushner bill, New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer said, “No landlord with outstanding violations should get away with escaping the consequences — not even if they’re related to the president.”

Big landlords, big bills 

City data suggest the Kushner Cos. is hardly alone among major landlords with big bills for unpaid fines. Landlord Steven Croman racked up $1 million in unpaid fines before his 2017 guilty plea for fraud, according a tenant advocacy group Cooper Square Committee. 

In general, the city has had a tough time collecting from landlords, restaurant owners, stores and others. In July, unpaid fines of all types in the city reached $1.5 billion, much of that from building code and construction violations.

And those landlords and others who are fined have a powerful incentive not to pay: If a fine isn’t collected in eight years, it expires and doesn’t need to be paid. In the year through June 2017, $94 million in fines expired.

The Kushner Cos. figure for unpaid fines doesn’t include those by contractors hired in its buildings, but that’s a distinction that often means little to tenants.

Ceiling collapse

At Kushner-owned 331-335 East 9th Street, Trident Structural Corp. was fined for several violations including one in 2013 for working without a permit. Trident still owes more than $10,000 from work at those buildings and the Kushner Cos. owes $4,000.

Sloppy work resulted in Uta Winkler’s ceiling collapsing twice, the first time sending gallons of water into her apartment and spreading mold that made her sick.

“It was like out of a fire hydrant,” said Winkler, who withheld rent payments in protest. “Nobody from the management company called me. Nothing. It was unreal.”

The Kushner Cos. said it “immediately remediated” when it found out about the water damage, but couldn’t comment any further because of litigation over Winkler’s rent.



Will Joe Run? Biden Feels the Push to Take On Trump in 2020

Shortly after Joe Biden boarded a recent flight from Washington to New York, a string of passengers began stopping at his seat in coach to deliver some version of the same message: Run, Joe, run. “We’re with you,” one said, according to a Democratic strategist who happened to be on the plane and witnessed the scene. “You’ve got to do this,” said another.

 

Biden himself is more conflicted — but he is listening keenly to the supporters pushing him to run for the White House in 2020. Biden is convinced he can beat President Donald Trump, friends and advisers say, and he has given himself until January to deliberate and size up potential competition for the Democratic nomination, according to people who have spoken to the former vice president about his decision-making.

 

In the meantime, Biden diligently maintains a network of supporters in key states, a group 30 years in the making, while some of those competitors are still making introductions.

 

As he makes each careful step, Biden faces the same dilemma. For an elder statesman in a leaderless party, one who long envisioned himself in the top job, the pull toward another presidential bid is strong. But the 75-year-old former vice president must weigh the realities of jumping into a crowded primary full of up-and-comers eager to debate the future of the party.

 

“He is not someone who needs to run to cement his place in history. He’s not someone who needs to run to feel he’s making a significant contribution to the public discourse and the Democratic Party,” said Anita Dunn, a former adviser to President Barack Obama. “But he is someone who, at the end of the day, feels a great deal of responsibility to listen to those people who are urging him to run.”

 

Biden would likely cast a long shadow, but a candidate Biden is not expected to clear what will be a crowded field of aspiring presidents in 2020. He would have competition for the support of the Democratic establishment. And he would almost certainly face tough challenges from the left — the source of much of the party’s energy at the moment — possibly from liberal firebrands Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders or Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Biden would likely cast himself as a more centrist Democrat with working-class appeal, bipartisan credentials and grounding in a more civil political culture that has faded in the Trump era, said Jim Margolis, a top adviser to Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns.

 

“He would carry the imprimatur of the Obama administration in addition to occupying a space in the middle that isn’t as crowded as others who are more actively running,” said Margolis.

He hit those themes gently at a memorial service for his late Senate colleague, Republican John McCain, last week.

 

“I always thought of John as a brother,” Biden said. “We had a hell of a lot of family fights.”

Biden has eyed the presidency for more than 30 years, waging a failed campaign for the party nomination in 1988 and another 2008, before Obama named him his running mate. He passed on running again in 2016 as he dealt with his son Beau’s battle with brain cancer. The younger Biden died in March 2015, as the Democratic campaign was taking shape.

 

Since leaving the vice president’s office he has emerged as among the party’s most popular national figures, and one of its most willing Trump adversaries.

 

Biden is in regular talks with a small team of longtime friends and advisers. He also talks to potential donors and longtime staff about the possibility of another campaign. However, he has also signaled to them they are free to ally with other prospective candidates, as he eyes a January timeframe for deciding on whether to run, according to three people familiar with Biden’s thinking who spoke to The Associated Press about his plans on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss private conversations.

That leaves Biden for the next two months as one of his party’s most sought-after 2018 campaign headliners. He plans to make multiple campaign stops a week this fall for Democratic candidates, according to people familiar with the plans.

 

“As the vice president has said many times himself, he is focused on electing as many Democrats as possible all across the country and on encouraging people to get out and vote this fall,” Biden adviser Kate Bedingfield said. “That’s the focus of his energy right now.”

Biden’s choices so far have shown off his deep ties to key early states. He has campaigned for a young former aide now running for Congress in northeastern Iowa, a part of the state with enduring personal loyalty to Biden but that swung toward Trump in 2016.

 

He recently penned an op-ed in The Des Moines Register eulogizing the late Rep. Leonard Boswell, an act that was not political but at the family’s request, according to aides.

 

In South Carolina, Biden endorsed the Democratic nominee for governor, as well as longtime friend and former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian, a state Senate candidate.

 

“If he wants, the day he says he wants to be running for president, he would have a built-in network here,” Harpootlian said. “He’s got friends here going back 30 years.”

 

Not all early-state party activists are clamoring for Biden Part III.

 

What’s left of his New Hampshire network, for instance, is fragmented, aging and undecided heading into 2020, said John Broderick, state chairman of Biden’s first campaign. Though Broderick, now 70, said his own family would gladly support Biden again, many in Biden’s New Hampshire support network “are getting longer in the tooth like I am.”

 

Likewise, Iowa Democrat Mary Maloney, a leading campaign activist for both of Biden’s campaigns, said she would support him, but wondered if younger voters would roll their eyes at yet another Baby Boomer candidate.

“I don’t know if a lot of young people get Joe Biden,” said Maloney, who is 63.

 

For that reason, Biden certainly wouldn’t block younger prospects from stepping forward, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley said.

 

“There’s a lot of young talent within the party that would like to run themselves,” he said.

 

All that aside, Margolis, who is in touch with Biden’s team, said,”I’m pretty confident that he and his closest advisers legitimately believe he has a real shot at this.”

 

Aboard the same New York shuttle in July, Margolis witnessed the unscripted reaction Biden received.

“Just watching on the plane, one after another coming up to him,” Margolis said. “Joe Biden was the happiest guy in the world.”



Trump’s Pollution Rules Rollback to Hit Coal Country Hard

It’s coal people like miner Steve Knotts, 62, who make West Virginia Trump Country.

So it was no surprise that President Donald Trump picked the state to announce his plan rolling back Obama-era pollution controls on coal-fired power plants.

Trump left one thing out of his remarks, though: northern West Virginia coal country will be ground zero for increased deaths and illnesses from the rollback on regulation of harmful emission from the nation’s coal power plants.

An analysis done by his own Environmental Protection Agency concludes that the plan would lead to a greater number of people here dying prematurely, and suffering health problems that they otherwise would not have, than elsewhere in the country, when compared to health impacts of the Obama plan.

Knotts, a coal miner for 35 years, isn’t fazed when he hears that warning, a couple of days after Trump’s West Virginia rally. He says the last thing people in coal country want is the government slapping down more controls on coal — and the air here in the remote West Virginia mountains seems fine to him.

People here have had it with other people telling us what we need. We know what we need. We need a job,” Knotts said at lunch hour at a Circle K in a tiny town between two coal mines, and 9 miles down the road from a coal power plant, the Grant Town plant.

The sky around Grant Town is bright blue. The mountains are a dazzling green. Paw Paw Creek gurgles past the town.

Clean-air controls since the 1980s largely turned off the columns of black soot that used to rise from coal smokestacks. The regulations slashed the national death rates from coal-fired power plants substantially.

These days pollutants rise from smoke stacks as gases, before solidifying into fine particles — still invisible — small enough to pass through lungs and into bloodstreams.

An EPA analysis says those pollutants would increase under Trump’s plan, when compared to what would happen under the Obama plan. And that, it says, would lead to thousands more heart attacks, asthma problems and other illnesses that would not have occurred.

Nationally, the EPA says, 350 to 1,500 more people would die each year under Trump’s plan. But it’s northern two-thirds of West Virginia and the neighboring part of Pennsylvania that would be hit hardest, by far, according to Trump’s EPA.

Trump’s rollback would kill an extra 1.4 to 2.4 people a year for every 100,000 people in those hardest-hit areas, compared to under the Obama plan, according to the EPA analysis. For West Virginia’s 1.8 million people, that would be equal to at least a couple dozen additional deaths a year.

Trump’s acting EPA administrator, Andrew Wheeler, a former coal lobbyist whose grandfather worked in the coal camps of West Virginia, headed to coal states this week and last to promote Trump’s rollback. The federal government’s retreat on regulating pollution from coal power plants was “good news,” Wheeler told crowds there.

In Washington, EPA spokesman Michael Abboud said Trump’s plan still would result in “dramatic reductions” in emissions, deaths and illness compared to the status quo, instead of to the Obama plan. Obama’s Clean Power Plan targeted climate-changing carbon dioxide, but since coal is the largest source of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels, the Obama plan would have curbed other harmful emissions from the coal-fired power plants as well.

About 160 miles to the south of Grant Town, near the state capital of Charleston, shop owner Doris Keller figures that if Trump thinks something’s for the best, that’s good enough for her.

“I just know this. I like Donald Trump and I think that he’s doing the right thing,” said Keller, who turned out to support Trump Aug. 21 when he promoted his rollback proposal. She lives five miles from the 2,900-megawatt John Amos coal-fired power plant.

“I think he has the best interests of the regular common people at the forefront,” Keller says.

Trump’s Affordable Clean Energy program would dismantle President Barack Obama’s 2015 Clean Power Plan, which has been caught up in court battles without yet being implemented.

The Obama plan targeted climate-changing emissions from power plants, especially coal. It would have increased federal regulation of emissions from the nation’s electrical grid and broadly promoted natural gas, solar power and other cleaner energy.

Trump’s plan would cede much of the federal oversight of existing coal-fired power plants and drop official promotion of cleaner energy. Individual states largely would decide how much to regulate coal power plants in their borders. The plan is open for public review, ahead of any final White House decision.

“I’m getting rid of some of these ridiculous rules and regulations, which are killing our companies … and our jobs,” Trump said at the rally.

There was no mention of the “small increases” in harmful emissions that would result, compared to the Obama plan, or the health risks.

EPA charts put numbers on just how many more people would die each year because of those increased coal emissions.

Abboud and spokeswoman Ashley Bourke of the National Mining Association, which supports Trump’s proposed regulatory rollback on coal emissions, said other federal programs already regulate harmful emissions from coal power plants. Bourke also argued that the health studies the EPA used in its death projections date as far back as the 1970s, when coal plants burned dirtier.

In response, Conrad Schneider of the environmental nonprofit Clean Air Task Force said the EPA’s mortality estimates had taken into account existing regulation of plant emissions.Additionally, health studies used by the EPA looked at specific levels of exposure to pollutants and their impact on human health, so remain constant over time, said Schneider, whose group analyzes the EPA projections.

With competition from natural gas and other cleaner energy helping to kill off more than a third of coal jobs over the last decade, political leaders in coal states are in no position to be the ones charged with enforcing public-health protections on surviving coal-fired power plants, said Vivian Stockman of the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition.

“Our state is beholden to coal. Our politicians are beholden to coal,” Stockman said outside Trump’s West Virginia rally, where she was protesting. “Meanwhile, our people are being poisoned.”

And when it comes to coal power plants and harm, Schneider said, “when you’re at Grant Town, you’re at Ground Zero.”

Retired coal miner Jim Haley, living 4 miles from the town’s coal-fired power plant, has trouble telling from the smokestack when the plant is even operating.

“They’ve got steam coming out of the chimneys. That’s all they have coming out of it,” Haley said.

Parked near the Grant Town post office, where another resident was rolling down the quiet main street on a tractor, James Perkins listened to word of the EPA’s health warnings. He cast a look into the rear-view mirror into the backseat of his pickup truck, at his 3-year-old grandson, sitting in the back.

“They need to make that safe,” said Perkins, a health-care worker who had opted not to follow his father into the coal mines. “People got little kids.”

 



Правоохоронці зловили на хабарі в.о. голови Держгеонадр – ГПУ

Виконувача обов’язків голови Державної служби геології та надр України викрили на хабарі, коли той вимагав та одержав 3 тисячі доларів за сприяння в оформленні документів на видобуток торфу, зазначив на своїй сторінці у Facebook Генпрокурор Юрій Луценко.

На його переконання, за цим дрібним хабарем насправді проглядається глобальна проблема тіньових оборудок Держгеології.

«З 2014 року лише 43 з 722 ліцензій було видано на аукціонах! Все решта – в ході чиновницьких ігор. Тому поки в держсекторі не пройде велика приватизація, на митниці не запрацює система електронних сканерів, а в Геонадрах не стануть обов‘язковими аукціони – будемо разом з колегами брати на хабарях великих і малих корупціонерів», – заявив Луценко.

Як повідомив на Facebook речник Генеральної прокуратури Андрій Лисенко, зараз тривають слідчі дії та вирішується питання про затримання чиновника та оголошення йому про підозру.

Лисенко нагадав, що санкція статті про одержання неправомірної вигоди передбачає покарання у виді позбавлення волі на строк від 5 до 10 років з позбавленням права обіймати певні посади чи займатися певною діяльністю на строк до 3 років, з конфіскацією майна.

 

 

 



Українська поліція почала розслідування захоплення Росією ще одного риболовецького судна біля Криму

Українська поліція відкрила провадження щодо захоплення представниками ФСБ Росії риболовецького судна «ЯОД 2105» та членів його команди в акваторії Чорного моря, повідомляється на сайті відомства.

За даними поліції, інцидент трапився 28 серпня.

«Четверо українських рибалок утримуються на прикордонній заставі міста Севастополя по теперішній час», – мовиться у повідомленні.

Як зазначається, справу розслідує Головне управління Нацполіції в Автономній республіці Крим та місті Севастополі за статтями «незаконне позбавлення волі» та «захоплення залізничного рухомого складу. повітряного, морського чи річкового судна за попередньою змовою групою осіб».

Це не перший випадок затримань суден у Чорному та Азовському морях за останній час. Як повідомлялося, після завершення будівництва автомобільної частини Керченського мосту, Росія затримала понад 148 українських та іноземних торговельних кораблів і допитувала членів екіпажів та інших людей, які перебували на таких суднах.

Окрім того, у березні українські прикордонники затримали кримське судно «Норд» разом із командою, коли воно рухалося під прапором Росії. 30 серпня українська прокуратура Криму заявила про завершення досудового розслідування у цій справі, звинувативши моряків у порушенні порядку в’їзду на непідконтрольну територію та виїзду з неї, а також незаконному промисловому рибальстві.

Незабаром після затримання екіпажу «Норду», 4 травня 2018 року, російські прикордонники затримали в Чорному морі українське риболовецьке судно «ЯМК-0041» із п’ятьома членами екіпажу на борту, звинувативши, у свою чергу, цих людей у незаконному рибальстві на підконтрольній їм території.

Окрім того, у Херсонському порту залишається заблокованим і російський танкер «Механік Погодін», про що стало відомо 10 серпня. Уповноважена Верховної Ради України з прав людини Людмила Денісова повідомила, що екіпажу судна дії української влади не стосуються. 12 членів екіпажу включно із капітаном, які є громадянами Росії, «вільні у своїх пересуваннях, їх ніхто не утримує».

 



Stare Decisis? Roe? A Supreme Court Confirmation Glossary

America is about to get its first extended look at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Viewers just tuning into the battle over the 53-year-old appellate judge’s nomination should expect to see Kavanaugh portrayed by fellow Republicans as a principled jurist who has no preconceived ideas about the law. Democrats will try to paint President Donald Trump’s nominee as a results-oriented conservative who wants to undo abortion rights and generally push the Supreme Court to the right.

Lawmakers know the public is watching, but as the nomination hearing gets going and lawmakers seek to probe the nominee’s views, they often slip into using legal jargon and refer to past Supreme Court cases in shorthand. It can sound as though they’re talking in code. Expect senators to use these terms at Kavanaugh’s hearing, starting Tuesday:

Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood v. Casey — These cases from 1973 and 1992, respectively, are the two main decisions on abortion rights. Kavanaugh has not said whether he believes they were decided correctly, and he’s not likely to do so during the hearings. But he is certain to be asked repeatedly about abortion, Roe and Casey. He has provided two recent clues to his views, in the form of a speech that praised the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist’s dissent in Roe and Kavanaugh’s own dissenting opinion that would have denied immediate access to an abortion for an immigrant teen in federal custody.

Stare decisis — Latin for to stand by things decided. It’s the legal principle that judges use to base decisions on earlier ones. When it comes up at confirmation hearings, it’s often in reference to abortion rights and it’s usually a way of asking if a nominee will overturn certain decisions — like Roe v. Wade. Nominees invariably invoke stare decisis, or refer to something as settled law, to try to reassure senators that they have great respect for Supreme Court precedents, without committing to preserve any specific one. Respect for precedent, however, has its limits. Last term, the court squarely overturned three precedents.

Chevron deference — A 1984 Supreme Court ruling, in a case involving the Chevron oil company, says that when laws aren’t crystal clear, federal agencies should be allowed to fill in the details. Tha’s what agencies do — on environmental regulations, workplace standards, consumer protections and even immigration law. But a growing conservative legal movement has questioned the Chevron decision. Kavanaugh has expressed some support for limiting agencies’ discretion, as have several conservative justices. If a future Supreme Court were to limit the Chevron ruling, it would mark a big change in the law that would potentially make it harder to sustain governmental regulations.

Recusal —  A judge’s decision to not take part in a case, usually because he participated in it at an earlier stage, or has a financial or personal conflict. Democrats are going to press Kavanaugh to pledge to recuse himself if a case comes to the court involving Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. He is not likely to commit to do so.

Unitary executive — Kavanaugh will be asked to explain his view of just how much power a president has under the unitary executive theory of constitutional law. Kavanaugh has written judicial opinions and law review articles that suggest he supports the idea that a president may decline to enforce a law he believes is unconstitutional. Questioners also may focus on Kavanaugh’s service in the White House under George W. Bush, who used signing statements to legislation that his administration saw as unreasonable or unconstitutional limits on executive power.

Subpoena — a legal order requiring a person to testify as a witness, it sometime also requires a person to turn over documents or other records under their control. Kavanaugh should expect to be asked whether the president can be subpoenaed, an open legal question that could reach the Supreme Court if Mueller tries to force the president to testify as part of the Russia investigation. Also an open question: Whether the president can be indicted, meaning charged with a crime.

Affirmative action — The term for efforts to improve opportunities for minorities, generally in employment and college admissions. It’s a standard topic for Supreme Court confirmation hearings, particularly after a 2003 Supreme Court decision that predicted affirmative action wouldn’t be necessary in 25 years. Senators may bring up a comment Kavanaugh made in 1999 about a different Supreme Court case, saying he believed it was “one more step along the way in what I see as an inevitable conclusion within the next 10 to 20 years when the court says we are all one race in the eyes of government.”

Balls and strikes — OK, that’s not a legal term, but it will come up anyway. Chief Justice John Roberts famously compared judges to umpires during his 2005 confirmation hearing, saying neither makes the rules, but rather both just apply them. He said he’d remember if confirmed that his job is “to call balls and strikes.” Lawmakers love to ask nominees about this analogy.

“Let him answer the question” — Again, not a legal term. Expect Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, or the Republican sitting in his place, to interject when Democrats’ questioning of Kavanaugh gets especially heated, or they try to cut in if they feel Kavanaugh is trying to filibuster. Question time is limited and senators often feel free to jump in to move the questioning along.

 

 

 



Справа про вбивство Веремія: Сергій Чемес отримав три роки тюрми

Дарницький районний суд Києва ув’язнив на три роки і три місяці Сергія Чемеса, одного з фігурантів справ про катування і вбивства під час подій Майдану. Про це повідомила у Facebook потерпіла у справі Світлана Кирилаш, удова вбитого у 2014 році журналіста В’ячеслава Веремія.

«По Чемесу оголошено вирок: 3 роки і 3 місяці реального ув’язнення. Але враховується його перебування під вартою з 9 березня 2017 року. Надалі Сергій Чемес буде співпрацювати зі слідством і давати свідчення проти Крисіна, Бялая та інших фігурантів», – написала вона.

Як раніше стало відомо, Чемес, якого вважають одним із «тітушок», який, зокрема, допитував викрадених активістів, уклав угоду зі слідством. У координації «тітушок» звинувачують Юрія Крисіна.

13 червня Апеляційний суд Києва скасував умовний термін і засудив до п’яти років позбавлення волі Юрія Крисіна за звинуваченням у причетності до вбивства журналіста газети «Вести» В’ячеслава Веремія під час Майдану в 2014 році.

22 грудня 2017 року Шевченківський районний суд Києва засудив Крисіна до чотирьох років позбавлення волі з випробувальним терміном два роки за статтею про «хуліганство». Прокуратура просила суд про 6-річне ув’язнення для Крисіна, і після оголошення вироку заявила про намір його оскаржити. Крисін у суді визнав себе винним у хуліганстві. Вирок викликав обурення і протести.

Журналіста газети «Вєсті» вбили в Києві вночі 19 лютого 2014 року. Як повідомив сайт видання, В’ячеслав Веремій разом із колегою на автомобілі повертався після роботи на Майдані, де виконував редакційне завдання. На розі вулиць Володимирської і Великої Житомирської в Києві на таксі, в якому вони їхали, напали невідомі особи з бейсбольними битками і зброєю, в касках, камуфляжі і чорних масках. Журналіст помер у лікарні швидкої допомоги від вогнепального поранення в живіт.



Конституція, ЄС, РФ і Крим: президент провів зустріч з лідерами фракцій

Сьогодні, 3 вересня, президент України Петро Порошенко провів зустріч з лідерами парламентських фракцій, на яких говорив про зміни до Конституції в питаннях вступу до Європейського Союзу, а також відносин з Росією і статусу окупованого Криму. 

Про майбутнє України

На зустрічі глава держави сказав, що незмінність зовнішньополітичного курсу України має ґрунтуватися на внесенні змін до Конституції, а інші формати, які не передбачають юридичних зобов’язань сторін – неефективні. 

«Дуже просив би, щоб проекти змін до Конституції якомога швидше було розглянуто, включено до порядку денного та направлено до Конституційного суду, щоб ті зміни, які відбулися після Революції гідності, були безповоротними, щоб не допустити реваншу», – сказав Порошенко. 

За словами президента, зміни буде внесено до преамбули, трьох статей та перехідних положень Основного закону України.

«У перехідних положеннях ми чітко фіксуємо позицію, що ми вилучаємо норму, на підставі якої в Україні перебував Чорноморський флот РФ. Конституційних підстав для цього після ухвалення цих конституційних змін не буде», – пояснив він. 

Порошенко також хоче зафіксувати в преамбулі цивілізаційний вибір України на європейську та євроатлантичну інтеграцію: в трьох статтях закону закріплять, що Верховна Рада, президент і уряд мають підтримувати і реалізовувати євроатлантичний курс України. 

Відносини з Росією 

Порошенко також наголосив, що Договір про дружбу, співробітництво і партнерство з Росією від 1997 року не розривається, а припиняє свою дію через непродовження, з огляду на це він має намір до 30 вересня направити відповідне повідомлення РФ.

«Я наголошую, що він не розривається, оскільки це складна і тривала процедура, а він припиняє свою дію через непродовження», – сказав глава держави, підкресливши, що питання продовження чи непродовження цього договору – винятково в йог компетенції. 

Після отримання необхідних документів від МЗС він має намір до 30 вересня направити зі своїм підписом повідомлення Російській Федерації про непродовження дії цього договору.

«Це вимагає голосування в парламенті, але, безумовно, я хотів би провести з цього приводу консультацію, щоб врахувати думку парламенту, щоб врахувати її під час підготовки відповідного рішення РНБО», – сказав Порошенко. 

Про Крим 

На зустрічі з лідерами парламентських фракцій Порошенко також сказав, що після прийняття змін до Конституції України щодо зовнішнього курсу держави буде розроблено зміни з приводу окупованого Росією Криму. 

Глава держави не уточнив, які конкретно кроки він має на увазі. Але додав, що найближчим часом буде скликано Конституційну комісію у зв’язку з майбутніми змінами по АРК.

За словами президента, представники кримських татар активно беруть участь в розробці змін. Також він закликав взяти участь у цьому процесі і народних депутатів. 

Про свій виступ 

На зустрічі Порошенко заяви також, що планує виступити зі щорічним посланням до Верховної Ради України у вересні. 

«Я планую зробити своє щорічне звернення у вересні. Ми з Андрієм Володимировичем Парубієм поговоримо про найбільш прийнятні дати для цього звернення», – сказав він.
