New law in Ukraine allows military to operate with impunity

Summary of Disinformation

The law on de-occupation of Donbass allows the Ukranian Army to kill and rob without trial and effect. The Ukrainian parliament voted for the de-occupation bill of Donbas on January 18, 2018 (# 7163),  the law “finally unleashes the hands of the Ukrainian military in terms of conducting military operations against the peaceful population of Donbass.”

Disproof

No evidence given. The essence of the law is that the Ukrainian parliament recognized the Russian Federation as an aggressor, and those "who take part in the armed aggression of the Russian Federation or who are involved in the Russian occupation administration are criminally liable for acts that violate Ukrainian legislation and international humanitarian law."

With regard to property in the occupied territories, the bill determines:
"For natural persons, regardless of their being registered as internally displaced persons or from acquiring a special legal status, as well as for legal entities, the right of ownership, other rights to property, including real estate, including land plots, which is located in temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Lugansk regions, if such property was acquired in accordance with the laws of Ukraine.
