Verkhovna Rada refuses to revoke decision banning St. George ribbon

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine refused to approve a draft resolution submitted by two MPs from the Opposition Bloc faction to abolish a law banning the production and distribution of the so-called St. George (Guards) ribbon.

Only 19 MPs voted in favor of the relevant draft resolution at the parliament’s sitting on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

As Ukrinform earlier reported, the Verkhovna Rada on May 16, 2017 passed a law on amendments to the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses regarding the ban on the production and distribution of St. George (Guards) ribbon.

The so-called St. George ribbon is a widely recognized military symbol in Russia.
