A new Basic law
should reflect the interests of the entire country “from west to east," said Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk during a
meeting of the Constitutional Commission on Monday, April 6.
about our dialogue with the East, it implies a dialogue exceptionally with the
legitimately elected representatives of eastern part of the country, never with
Russian mobsters and terrorists," urged Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
"We expect from Russia
abiding by the Minsk agreements and conducting fair and transparent local
elections that meet the standards of the OSCE and ODIHR (OSCE Office for Democratic
Institutions and Human Rights - ed.), to ensure that an inclusive dialogue to prepare
amendments to the Constitution gathers representatives of the entire
country", stressed the Head of the Ukrainian Government.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk accentuated
the basic law would be written by “the Ukrainian President, the Ukrainian Constitutional
Commission, the Ukrainian Parliament that needs a firm constitutional majority
of over 300 votes to support the Constitution and Ukrainian people”.
“Neither Moscow nor anyone else will have a
right to tell us what kind of Constitution we should have. It is our country
and our Constitution,” the Prime Minister of Ukraine stressed.
