23 years ago, our Constitution was born. This is the main document of our country, which was to become the basis for agreement between the Ukrainians, the basis for the prosperity of the country and each of us.
But over the past five years, the Constitution has so often been held hostage by the authorities, so often the correct and democratic norms laid down in it were violated that it is difficult to call this day the birthday of the Constitution.
The rules and principles of the Basic Law were shamelessly violated. Freedom of speech, social guarantees, cultural rights are violated, laws were not passed in accordance with the Constitution, but contrary to it. Medical, educational, pension reforms directly contradict the Basic Law.
Peace, prosperity and harmony will return to Ukraine only when the Constitution becomes strong again, its provisions are respected, the rights and freedoms of people again become the main priority of the state.
The OPPOSITION BLOC proposed its own version of the Constitution, which will allow restoring civilian peace, guaranteeing the rights and freedoms of Ukrainian citizens.
Simplicity, transparency and benefits are the three components that determine our approach to the Constitution.
We stand for Ukraine’s transition to a parliamentary republic and the elimination of dualism in power.
We propose to expand the powers of local communities, to carry out real decentralization, rather than fake one.
The state will no longer interfere in church affairs, indicate the regions, what language to speak, what monuments to put and how to name cities.
It is impossible to move forward without this.
The new Constitution of Ukraine should create the basis for the economic development of the country.
Ukraine needs a strong, working Constitution!
Our task is to return this force to it.
Happy Constitution Day, dear compatriots!
