климкин

Western experts have confirmed that the work underway in Ukraine within the constitutional process meets the Minsk agreements.

As reported by Censor.NET citing UNIAN, this was announced by Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, when asked about the statement of Russian president Vladimir Putin in which he accused Ukraine of failing on implementation of the Minsk agreements.

"We follow recommendations of the Venice Commission in the first place, which clearly sees the logic of the constitutional amendments. We have legal experts from Germany and France, clearly stating that what is being done in the framework of the constitutional process in Ukraine fully complies with the Minsk agreements. If Putin accidentally did not happen to hear these expert opinions, I think that the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs should fill this information gap," Klimkin said.

As reported, today Putin said that Ukrainian authorities should agree changes to the Constitution with the representatives of the "LPR" and "DPR" because "all that is now offered as a change is entirely declarative and, in fact, does not alter Ukraine's power structure."
