The demand of Russia about the enshrining of the special status of particular areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in the Constitution of Ukraine will not be supported by the Verkhovna Rada as Syohodni reported citing Head of Ukrainian delegation at Minsk Talks Leonid Kravchuk.

“If Russia really believes, and it is serious, that we have to amend the Constitution, then I ask a question: how a democratic country, and we follow the way of democracy, may come to the parliament and say that you should vote for it. I know that three factions (EU, Holos and Batkivshchyna, - will not vote. I know for sure that some part of the MPs from the Servant of the People, especially elected through plurality voting, might not vote. I am not even talking that it has nothing to do with the international documents meaningfully,” Kravchuk said.
