Ukraine’s President Addressed The Petition To Lift Sanctions Imposed On Parimatch

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has officially responded to a petition calling for the lifting of sanctions against Parimatch.

Earlier this year Parimatch had to terminate its B2C operations in Ukraine after being included in the list of companies that were sanctioned by the Ukrainian government for allegedly keeping ties with the aggressor-state.

Irina Kuropiatnyk, who launched the “Lift Sanctions from Parimatch” petition in June, sought to cancel a long-standing ban that had been imposed on Parimatch for 50 years. The petition has collected over 25,000 signatures.

This request was passed on to President Zelenskyy, to which he formally responded under the petition on the government website: “I thank everyone who joined this petition for their active civic position.

“According to part two of Article 19 of the Constitution of Ukraine, bodies of state power and bodies of local self-government, their officials are obliged to act only on the grounds, within the limits of authority and in the manner envisaged by the Constitution and laws of Ukraine.”

After explaining specific laws, the President added:

“In view of the above, I requested the Prime Minister of Ukraine D. Shmyhal to carefully study the issue raised in the text of the petition and, if there are grounds, to take the necessary response measures.

“The author of the electronic petition will be informed about the relevant results by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.”
