The Prosecutor’s Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea initiated a criminal case against Booking.com for “selling stolen goods”. The web-site may be blocked on the territory of Ukraine. This was announced by the MP of the “National Front” faction Grygoriy Logvinsky.
“The Dutch company Booking.com is actively cooperating with the fraud authorities, explicitly promoting their facilities, performing business dealings and selling accommodations in the Crimean hotels and resorts stolen from Ukraine. They even sell trips to the resorts grabbed from the Verkhovna Rada and the Administration of the President of Ukraine, thus stealing money from the high state authorities,” Logvinsky noted.
The MP also stands for limiting access to the website and refurbishing the illegal funds in favour of Ukraine.
"I hope that the highly-developed Holland, which considers Ukraine unworthy of the EU membership, won’t miss the beam in their eyes and bring the national and international law violator to the responsibility.
As it was reported earlier, the Dutch government has started preparing for the ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union. Previously the Netherlands have prepared a draft resolution on Ukraine Association Agreement with the European Union. In the offered document Netherlands proposed to deprive Ukraine of the EU's financial and military aid and not provide citizens of Ukraine the right to live and work in the EU. Europe noted that failure to comply with the Dutch requirements may jeopardize Association Agreement of Ukraine with the EU.
In accordance with EU regulations, before entering into force, the agreement must be ratified by the government of each member state of the union. 61% of the Dutch, who came to the polling stations, voted against the Agreement on the association of Ukraine with the European Union in a consultative referendum in the Netherlands on April 6.
It is noteworthy that the political part of the agreement was signed on March 21, 2014, the economic part - June 27, 2014. At the moment, AA was ratified by almost all the parties of the process.
