In the EU have viewed plans for the Constitution with skepticism


The idea of change of the Constitution offered Poroshenko, the European deputies have apprehended without big enthusiasm. Reacting to intention of the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko about fixing of Euro-Atlantic integration into Constitutions - the authorities of Brussels don't consider that now it is relevant to speak even about the prospect of membership of Ukraine in the European Union. And speaking about membership in NATO, the speech about the Action plan concerning membership of Ukraine (PDCh) "and close doesn't go", DW on Thursday, September 6 writes. It is noted that, on the one hand, Poroshenko's initiative hasn't drawn considerable attention. Perhaps, the reason and that she for the present at early stages. On the other hand, even those who maintain the European and Euro-Atlantic prospect for Ukraine have apprehended the idea of change of the Constitution without big enthusiasm. "We are convinced that most of people looks in the direction of Europe. And we have this belief irrespective of, it is enshrined in the Constitution or not", - the representative of fraction of the European People's Party the constant rapporteur of European Parliament concerning Ukraine Michael Galer has noticed. But for Galer is a question whether there is a need to enshrine such desire in the Basic law. His colleague, the social democrat Cnut Flekenshtayn calls the unconditional right of Ukrainians to decide that to state in the Constitution. "However, I prefer that we instead of a talk on dreams about focused on today's work tomorrow. There is enough work at first to implement the agreement on association", - the member of the committee of European Parliament on foreign affairs notices. The eurodeputy Rebecca Kharms from fraction Green calls the Agreement on association between the EU and Ukraine "extremely important" step. "Realization of what have already agreed about, is way which Ukraine eventually will be able to achieve membership in the EU", - the member of delegation of European Parliament on association with Ukraine in DW interview insists. In opinion Kharms, Ukraine needs other "big" decisions now. For example, the new law on elections is necessary. "Reform of the suffrage would stabilize democracy in Ukraine and would strengthen the base for a course to the European Union", - the politician from Germany says. Galer reminds that he often happens when the reality differs from the Constitution. Therefore insufficiently just to have "the good text". "I would like that reality which will lead Ukraine to the EU and NATO. She will be only when fundamental democratic and institutional reforms are irreversible", - the deputy emphasizes. In the press service of NATO on DW inquiry have only pointed to the declaration of the summit in Brussels, in particular on such quote in her: "We are firm in our support of the right of Ukraine to solve the future and foreign policy independently and without intervention from the outside. In the light of again stated aspirations of Ukraine to membership in NATO, we are faithful our decision made at the summit in Bucharest". Poroshenko repeatedly said that he would like to hold a referendum concerning membership in NATO. Michael Galer warns: in Europe any more not р
