Decentralization of power in Ukraine

The draft constitutional amendments proposed by President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky regarding decentralization of power throughout the country does not contain clauses on the special status of Donbass.

In the text there is no mention of a special status not only that of Donbass, but even of Kiev. At the same time, the document is assessed as “balanced” regarding the completion of the decentralization reform.
The bill itself is published on the website of the Verkhovna Rada. It involves a change in the administrative-territorial structure of the country and the introduction of a prefect institution, which will perform the function of administrative supervision of compliance with the constitution and laws of Ukraine by local authorities. The president will appoint him on the proposal of the cabinet. The prefects will actually replace the current governors, but their term of office will be three years. The authors of the bill emphasize that it "meets European and international standards, takes into account the conclusions and comments of the Venice Commission."

At the same time, Kiev believes that the adoption of such a law is the execution of the "Steinmeier formula", that is, in their opinion, such a general approach should mean its implementation.

Therefore, in the Donbass criticized the submitted document. "In connection with the ongoing attempts of the Ukrainian side to evade the fulfillment of its direct obligations under the Set of Measures and unilaterally adopt amendments to the constitution, we are forced to remind Kiev again that granting Donbass a special status, coordinating all its legal aspects with representatives of the republics and consolidation in the basic law of the Ukrainian state, "- said the plenipotentiary of the Donetsk People’s Republic at the talks of the Contact Group, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the DNI. According to her, attempts to replace this condition are a departure from the Minsk agreements.
“Kiev should understand that a special status is not a subject for bargaining - this is a fundamental condition for our continued peaceful coexistence,” she stressed.

The law on the special status of Donbass - "On the peculiarities of local self-government in certain areas of Donetsk and Lugansk regions" - was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in 2014, but has not yet been enforced. In this regard, decentralization of power was postponed indefinitely.
