Parliament proposes to force national guard to wear identification marks
The people’s deputy of the Golos faction, Aleksandra Ustinova, has registered a bill in the Verkhovna Rada which should oblige the guards of the National Guard, who exercise police functions to protect people during public events, to wear identification marks.
This was reported by the press service of the party “Voice” on Facebook.
“The National Guard, which ensures public order during mass events, must have a numbered identity document. This is why our Alexandra Ustinova registered Bill No. 3731 with the Rada. It obliges the National Guard fighters, who exercise police functions to protect people at public events, to wear identifying marks. Among them could be identified, “the report said.
The author of the bill recalls that compulsory identification was introduced in 2015, but this was done exclusively for representatives of the national police. Representatives of the National Guard, today heavily involved in the protection of public order, this requirement has passed.
“As a result, we have examples of beatings of peaceful protesters by representatives of the National Guard, which cannot be identified because only the part number is written on their ammunition. To prevent this from happening again In the future, we suggest that the National Guard wear the same identification as the National Police, when involved in the protection of public order. We hope this will help identify offenders in the ranks of the National Guard, as well only to prevent beatings and other abuses of power, “said Ustinova.
