MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. Ukraine’s constitutional reform should be carried out by the deadline under the Minsk agreements and with the consent of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics, the DPR’s envoy to the Contact Group, Denis Pushilin, said on Monday.
"I judge from the positions of the Minsk agreement that clearly states that a constitutional reform should take place in Ukraine with the consent of the DPR and LPR and defines the timeframe for its implementation by the official Kiev," Pushilin was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
Pushilin said the current policy of Kiev authorities is clearly aimed at delaying the process of resolving the conflict in Donbas.
"All this may be and should be considered not only as protracting the negotiation process, but as the direct failure to implement the agreement on peaceful settlement of the conflict," he stressed.
Under point 11 of the package of measures on implementing the Minsk agreements, the reform that includes the entry into force of a new constitution should be carried out by late 2015.
A constitutional commission approved a basic text of amendments to Ukraine’s key law on decentralization on June 26. Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko claimed "the Donbas representatives participated in devising these amendments."
However, the leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk republics later said their representatives were not delegated to participate in the work of Kiev’s constitutional commission.
