Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko stated that there would be no federalization of Ukraine as the Russian Federation wants. The Foreign Minister said this during a hearing at the European Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in Brussels, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

"There are clear red lines in Ukraine. The first is that Ukraine will remain a unitary state. The second is that it will not change its constitution and carry out any kind of "federalization" that Russia wants," Prystaiko said.

He assured that elections in Donbas will be conducted in accordance with Ukrainian law, under the supervision and according to OSCE rules, when the security situation is normalized.

In order for this to happen, it is necessary for the Russian Federation to completely withdraw its troops and all paramilitary formations, and for the Ukrainian government — to regain control of the state border.

As we reported earlier, Foreign Minister informed that he does not personally negotiate with the representatives of the Russian Federation. According to him, negotiating teams, such as the Tripartite Contract Group within the framework of the Minsk process, are engaged in this process.
