The Constitution of Ukraine is a fundamental law that protects our rights and provides the foundation for further development of the State, in particular through the guarantees of community development. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced during the Justice Weekend topical event, which was held in Kyiv on the occasion of the Day of Constitution in Ukraine. This is the first such event, which took place in one of the parks of Kyiv, where everyone could approach the thematic booths and learn interesting facts from the history of the Constitution, the activities of the executive service, the history of Ukrainian justice and the work of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.
The Head of Government visited the event and, appealing to the audience, noted that the Constitution is a fundamental law, the role of which has not yet been fully evaluated by the society. "This is the foundation, which guarantees the rights, regulates a number of spheres in the life of our State", said Volodymyr Groysman.
The PM reminded that the current Constitution is not the first such experience for Ukraine. "I would like to mention the year of 1918. The Constitution of the UPR there was a section on local governance. 100 years ago they laid the foundations of strong and capable communities. If that norm had been introduced at that time we would have had hundreds of thousands communities that would strengthen Ukraine. But 100 years later we have returned to this process. We have embarked on a discussion of changes to the Constitution in terms of decentralization in order to give each community a guarantee of financial capacity and decision-making capabilities."
