KIEV, February 3. /TASS/. Ukraine will remain a unitary state, President Petro Poroshenko said on Tuesday.
"Ukraine will never be a federation, it will remain a unitary state," he told a briefing in Kharkiv.
Poroshenko claimed 85% of Ukrainians were in favor of Ukraine’s going on as a unitary state. He said he was confident of that choice of the nation and was ready "to put this matter for a referendum."
At a meeting with a delegation of the Venice Commission earlier on Tuesday, Poroshenko said his country was following the path of reforms and decentralization.
