The team of the president of Ukraine has a willingness to carry out constitutional reform following the Normandy format summit, but it promises to limit these changes to the decentralization issues, including with regard to CADLO. This was stated by Assistant to the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak at a meeting in London, organized by Chatham House and the Ukrainian Prism, - European Pravda reports.

According to Yermak, this requirement will be fulfilled, as provided for by the Minsk agreements.

"Ukraine is ready to fulfill the provision of the Minsk agreements, which provides for constitutional reform in terms of decentralization", - he stated.

"We are not talking about any federalization", - the presidential aide added.

Yermak explained that the amendments to the Constitution in question will relate to the transfer of part of the authority to the local level, but there will also be certain provisions regarding CADLO.

"Certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts may receive additional powers. But this will never mean that it will be federalization or some kind of autonomy", - he added.

Yermak also expressed confidence that this would not pose a threat to the integrity of Ukraine.
