Further reforms in the country require amendments to the Constitution. This primarily refers to the most critical state reform - decentralization. Vice Prime Minister - Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko stated this at a press conference held on Thursday in Kyiv.

"Only amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine can guarantee successful implementation of the reform. The Venice Commission has previously given a favorable assessment of a draft Constitution. I am hopeful that this fact makes the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine decide and support amendments that will fundamentally change the country for the better," Hennadii Zubko said.

According to him, within a new Constitution President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko proposes to give the maximum authority to local government that will enable them to pursue a most-independent-of-Kyiv policy.

"The delay in the adoption of amendments to the Constitution puts in jeopardy further implementation of reforms," Hennadii Zubko underlined.

He has also noted that the state of implementation of reforms, according to international experts, NGOs, the project office of reforms at the National Reform Council, makes up 46% out of the planned in 2015.
