MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Constitution needs profound changes, head of the delegation of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) at the Contact Group Denis Pushilin said on Tuesday.
"EU Ambassador Jan Tombinski is largely right when he talks about the need to completely change the Constitution of Ukraine. Indeed, over the past 10 or 15 years, all amendments to Ukraine’s Constitution were connected only with the power ambitions of the political forces coming to power," Donetsk News Agency quotes him as saying.
According to Pushilin, this is due to the struggle for power between the branches of government, and "the situation has been brewing for a long time."
"The neglect of the need to take into consideration the interests of Ukrainian citizens, the neglect of the need to enshrine the proportional electoral system in the Constitution, and, most importantly, the neglect of the decentralization in the form of federalization have led Ukraine to a civil war," he said.
"And, as Ukraine’s American friends now point out, only confederation may be a way out of this situation for the country that would prevent its complete collapse," Pushilin noted.
