There is no mention of federalization of the country in the draft amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine.

This was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on Saturday during the general meeting of the Association of Ukrainian cities in Kyiv, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraina.

"In my address on the occasion of the Day of Unity, I have emphasized that collegiality symbolizes the unitary character of our country for all of us. It presupposes a strict ban on the import of all destructive ideas of federalism unacceptable for Ukraine," the president said in Kyiv.
