The issues concerning the territorial-administrative structure of Ukraine are exclusively within the competence of its state institutions, the position reads. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry specifies that the protection of the rights and freedoms of representatives of all national minorities is among the fundamental priorities of Ukraine.
