MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. Draft amendments to Ukraine’s Constitution presented by the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (DPR, LPR) on June 8 have been drawn up in strict compliance with the Minsk agreements of February 12, 2015, DPR envoy to the Contact Group on Ukraine Denis Pushilin said on Wednesday.
"The amendments to the Ukrainian Constitution submitted by us are one of the provisions of the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements, which we try to abide by meticulously," the Donetsk news agency quotes him as saying. "We believe it’s the only way of defusing the conflict without casualties and bloodshed."
The Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements adopted by the Contact Group on February 12 envisages, in particular, comprehensive ceasefire, the establishment of the security zone in the Donbass region, the beginning of benefits and pensions payments to DPR and LPR residents and the constitutional reform in Ukraine aimed at decentralizing the public administration.
