Nikolaev regional organization of social movement "National self-defense" and regional organization of political party "Forward, Ukraine! " are extremely concerned by behavior of the People's Deputy of Ukraine of III and the IV convocation of Victor Gorbachev which in defiance of the Constitution of Ukraine and other acts of Ukraine forbids employees of the Sotka restaurant which owner he is, to serve people of "the Caucasian nationality".
According to instructions of the owner workers of an institution humiliate visitors and demand from them to show documents in which their nationality would be specified. In case of refusal to testify the nationality of visitors force to leave an institution.
Such actions of the People's Deputy of Ukraine and employees of Sotka restaurant are rough violation of the Constitution of Ukraine and incitement of international hostility in Nikolaev.
We demand from V. Gorbachev the official answer with an explanation of the position of rather rough violation of the Constitution of Ukraine, the rights and freedoms of citizens of Ukraine. We address to local authorities, political and public organizations, with a request to express to the public of the city of Nikolaev the position concerning a situation with violation of the rights of citizens of Ukraine at Sotka restaurant.
We want to remind that in article 11 of the Constitution of Ukraine it is specified: "The state promotes consolidation and development of the Ukrainian nation, her historical consciousness, traditions and cultures, and also to development of ethnic, cultural, language and religious identity of all indigenous people and ethnic minorities of Ukraine".
