Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has said on the  Ukraina TV Channel that he earlier opposed the cancellation of the  political reform of 2004. But now, he said, following the Constitutional Court's decision on the unconstitutionality of the amendments introduced to the  Constitution of Ukraine in December 2004, this "decision should be adopted and observed."

He said that the country's return to the constitution of 1996 and a presidential-parliamentary form of government placed greater responsibility on him for much broader powers, UKRINFORM reported.

Yanukovych stressed that the reform of the country, which was initiated by the new Ukrainian authorities, could not be stopped. He said that many problems in Ukraine had arisen due to the fact that the previous authorities had lost control of the country, which in turn has led to corruption. "Chaos can never lead to success," the president said.

Now, Yanukovych said, the authorities are trying to improve the situation. Much is being done so that Ukraine is again considered in the world as a reliable partner and that its citizens again believe the authorities.

He said that one of his priorities was the fight against poverty. Wages in Ukraine are much lower than in countries such as Russia and Belarus. "This has been seen over the last five years," he said.

Yanukovych also said that reforming many areas of social life was an important task. In particular, he pointed to the reform of criminal justice, judicial reform, the fight against corruption, and economic reforms.

"The reform process that began in Ukraine cannot be stopped," Yanukovych said, adding that the "modernization of the country in all spheres is what we currently need to do."
