You cannot trade national security – Zissels, the decision of the national security Council


The decision to cease connections with the territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions, outside of Kiev, was a compromise of the authorities towards society.

It on a press-conferences in Kiev were told by the Chairman of the Confederation of Jewish organizations and communities of Ukraine Joseph Zissels.

“As from a great iceberg in the spring split blocks and go to great diving, and from the last of the Russian Empire for over a hundred years broke almost 15 such blocks. This occurs when the identity reaches a certain level. We have a carrier of this new identity is a civil society. But the state apparatus is very conservative. He retained elements not even Soviet and Russian era — coloniality. And very difficult changes,” he says.

“This difference between the Ukrainian identity, which develops according to the laws of civil society and the state apparatus leads us to the revolutions in 2004 and 2013. it is Now also significant.

The decision of the Council of national security and defense temporarily stop transport of uncontrolled territories of Donbas is an attempt by the government to at least partially conform to the requirements of civil society, which is the main factor of movement to European civilization,” says Zissels.

In his opinion, we need to take the example of Israel.

“You can’t sell national security. Ukraine must feel a threat to its existence and not to pay attention to some voices, even from the West. As Israel does. He stands in opposition even to the whole world. No compromises impossible, because it is the path to the defeat and destruction of the state,” he added.

NSDC supported the President’s proposal. Security forces ordered to immediately stop the movement of goods across the line of demarcation.
