Letter on Facebook to Mr. President, Petro Oleksiyovuch Poroshenko

Dear Mr. President Petro Oleksiyovuch Poroshenko,
please, take into your consideration, Law #6052 has been submitted by the Parliment of Ukraine, with a deadline for your approval/disapproval due on May 8, 2018.
Are you experimenting with the Democracy, are you blending practice into research by dividing the military people into the two categories of the citizens who can and cannot leave the army?
According to the well established democratic principles expressed in The Belmont Report (July 12, 1974): the leader should not have crossed the boundary of Ethics and the Home Legislation:
- Respect for Person (I mean that the military with the terms due to demobilization according to The Belmont Report are the  "persons with diminished autonomy are entitled to protection" from you Mr. President.);
- Beneficence (The contracts of several categories of the military have ended, where is your risk-benefit analysis? On what principles did you calculate the present payment to these military persons?). Have you offered them to sign the new contracts?;
- Justice (Who should receive the benefits and burdens of this research, why are you not treating equals equally?)
For this reason, I would refer to Waldo Emerson “For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?”.
Please, take into your consideration - what is not ethical cannot be legal; moreover, the fuzziness cannot be permissible, in a country with so many weaknesses and threats. Also, finally, in this day I will bring your kind attention to the Nuremberg Code adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948: it states that the voluntary consent of the human subject in the human experiments is absolutely essential.
Oleksiy Fesenko
