The status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in the current version of the Ukraine’s Constitution fully regulates the status of Crimea and protects the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, the Head of the Verkhovna Rada of the first convocation Oleksandr Moroz told the QHA.
- The status of the Crimean autonomy was absolutely enough for us as the autonomy means the territory and ethnic composition (of the population - Ed.). Therefore, I believe that it will generate some opposition. [...] The Crimean Tatar people's rights certainly must be protected and provided for by the Constitution. I believe this is enough, said Moroz.
He went on saying that the amendments to the Constitution cannot be adopted if the war has been declared in the country. On the other hand, since the martial law has not been declared in Ukraine, the First Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada said that such changes can be an effective tool for tackling the problems.
In the course of the Verkhovna Rada session to the Day of the Ukraine’s Constitution, Petro Poroshenko once again confirmed that the Basic Law of the country must be amended in order to create the Crimean Tatar Autonomy in Crimea.
