Establishment of security in the east of Ukraine is the only condition to consider amendments to Ukrainian Constitution.
Any amendments to the Constitution in Verhovna Rada would be voted not today and even not tomorrow. It is absolutely clear that to make changes to the Constitution regarding decentralization process require establishment of security in the East of Ukraine. There must be absolute and long-time ceasefire, – said Petro Poroshenko.
Poroshenko also noted that the local elections at non-controlled by Ukrainian government territories should take place “in accordance with OSCE standards.” He added that Ukraine’s position regarding the amendments to Ukrainian Constitution in terms of decentralization is fully understood by the European partners.
Earlier, it was reported by OSCE that there was a “cautious hope” to end the conflict in Donbas.
