Berlin offers Kyiv to change Constitution
German MPs say Ukraine can benefit from submitting changes to the basic law
Ukraine should submit changes to the Constitution that would allow holding elections in Donbas, said German MP Manuel Sarrazin. The official, who is in Ukraine with the official visit, noted that such step would guarantee extension of sanctions against Russia.
“It is necessary to persuade the international audience that Ukraine makes every effort to fulfill its commitments according to Minsk deal. It would be the most serious argument for EU member countries to save and extend the sanctions”, he said.
Sarrazin added that the restrictions against Russia will be extended under any circumstances, if the ceasefire doesn’t last in eastern Ukraine.
Previously, Canadian Foreign Minister Stephane Dion said elections in eastern Ukraine are impossible unless the warring sides withdraw their weaponry from the division line.
