Amendments to the Constitution: betrayal or victory? Author: Yurii Hanushchak, Director of the Institute for Territorial Development

Betrayal or victory? This question always arises when government initiatives appear. And in most cases there is no absolute “black-or-white” answer. The President's proposal to amend the Constitution in respect of decentralisation (draft No. 2598) is now undergoing a thorough analysis by experts, accompanied by backlash of politicians who sometimes risk their reputation in advance, trying to obtain some rating points without miscalculating the risk of being caught on manipulations.

Such chances to carry out a global reform of territorial organization of power are seldom, perhaps once in a lifetime. The Verkhovna Rada of the 8th convocation failed. The Verkhovna Rada of the 9th convocation has been granted a second chance to do it. We should help People’s Deputies not to lose the opportunity to tell their grandchildren later about their involvement in building strong modern Ukraine. And then it will be our joint VICTORY.
