Media-Breakfast: What Is Actually Hidden in the New Draft of Constitution?

For more than a year, political circles in Ukraine have been drafting amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine, which are soon to be published. However does the new version of the Highest Law actually establish new system that facilitates country’s development? Are there any political secretive agreements hidden in the draft? Will Ukraine finally acquire an independent judiciary? When will the Constitutional Court seize representing a political puppet? Who is actually guiding the process of drafting the amendments to the Constitution?

The Reanimation Package of Reforms invites the representatives of the foreign media and press-officers of embassies and missions to the press-breakfast with experts- constitutionalists, who will unveil and explain the constitutional process.
