BERLIN, March 6./TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s statement about the setting up of a constitutional commission can hardly satisfy anyone, as it is not clear whether it will take into account the interests of Ukraine’s south-east, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said after a "Normandy Four" deputy foreign ministerial meeting.
"The statement about the setting up of a constitutional commission voiced by President Poroshenko one of these days can hardly satisfy anyone as it is unclear what kind of a commission it will be, how it will work and to which extent it will consider the interests and aspirations of certain regions of Ukraine, first of all its south-east," he said.
"Not a word has been said about it and I have an impression that it is hushed up for a reason," the diplomat added. "We will watch. I repeat once again: the OSCE mission is vested with all necessary powers to influence the Kiev authorities in the settlement of these issues," Karasin said.
