In addition, failure to amend the country's constitution on decentralization hinder all parties to fulfill their obligations under the Minsk agreements.
"Poroshenko and Groisman's high time to act. Patience is not limitless in Europe, and sooner or later the EU will refuse to renew the anti-Russian sanctions. Ukraine, of course, expect from the EU guarantee that in the future will be integrated into its ranks. But the way to Europe for Ukrainians still have to pass on their own ", - emphasized in the article.
