The United States quickly put in place of the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who decided to bring the question of decentralization on the referendum.
About this informed the head of the faction "Block of Petro Poroshenko" in the Verkhovna Rada Yuriy Lutsenko. "When Yatsenyuk declares the referendum of the Constitution and is meant for the entire world, and immediately called the leadership of the United States, Germany, France and other countries, for all that statement was a rejection of the Minsk agreements. For them it would be a political catastrophe", — said the head of the faction PPO. According to Lutsenko, as a result of explanatory talks Yatsenyuk quickly came to his senses, after which he managed to "find common language".
Recall, Ukraine has pledged to decentralize power in the course of the Minsk talks. Changes to the Constitution should have been adopted last year, but agreements were grossly violated by the official Kyiv. Analysts note that Poroshenko was a hostage situation, so as to implement the agreement, he radicals, and the West, tired of the protracted Ukrainian crisis, insists on its implementation.
We will remind, earlier the German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been called and Poroshenko himself. At the meeting he had to explain why it is still not adopted amendments to the Constitution. Given recent reports, Ukrainian President, apparently, laid the responsibility for the failure of the agreements to the Prime Minister, although the audience blamed, as always, Russia.
