“It is clear that the plan’s major task should be the end of the punitive operation and the launch of a dialogue between all regions of the country,” Naryshkin said on Thursday.
“Recently Petro Poroshenko has submitted a draft to the Verkhovna Rada for making amendments to the Constitution. Poroshenko says his amendments to the Constitution ‘is the priority part of the peace plan’,” Naryshkin said.
“The future of Poroshenko’s peace plan and the future of the country depend on the fate of the amendments,” he said.
“The problem of federalisation is being removed from the agenda. Certain experts say the so-called decentralisation of Ukraine has the same prospects as Poroshenko’s peace plan because a temporary truce was stopped by the Ukrainian president,” Naryshkin said.
Commenting on the discrimination of Russian-speaking people in Ukraine, he said, “This infringes upon the fundamental rights of millions of residents in Ukraine.”
Fierce military attacks of the pro-Kiev forces on the country’s south-eastern regions resumed after President Petro Poroshenko, who had been elected in late May and taken office on June 7, decided to end the 10-day ceasefire in the southeast on Monday. When the truce was in place, there were reports that it was repeatedly violated by Kiev.
