The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov says that the parliament would not have enough votes to support the ideas of Ukraine’s potential federalization if they were proposed. Razumkov stated this on the air of the 1+1 TV channel, RBC reports.
"I do not think that there are such political directions, like a transition to federalization, in the parliament today," Razumkov said.
He also doubts that such initiatives to amend the Constitution could gain a sufficient number of votes of MPs if they existed.
As we reported earlier, according to the Head of the Presidential Administration Andriy Yermak, the Ukrainian government has developed a common strategy in relation to the mayors, aimed at preventing federalization of the country.
“We have a strategy for building a state - to prevent the county from falling apart into principalities, not to allow even one iota of reasons for federalizing our country. These are also the principles with which we went to the polls: legality, the fight against corruption, human life as the highest value and person as a priority for the state," he stated.
