On the Aspects of Regulatory Support to Restore Validity of the Specific Provisions of the Constitution of Ukraine

Regulatory support to restore validity of the specific provisions of the Constitution of Ukraine is studied. The essence of the process of gradual adoption of a number of regulatory legal acts by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is considered, since they (despite the absence of the President of Ukraine who had left the state) ensured restoration of the provisions of the Law of Ukraine No. 2222-IV of 8 December 2004 and supplemented it with the provisions of laws No. 2952-VI of 1 February 2011 and No. 586-VII of 19 September 2013 amending the Constitution of Ukraine.
Such actions are proved to have contributed to the legitimate transition from the presidential and parliamentary form of government to the parliamentary and presidential one, and have established a democratic way to form new state authorities.
Keywords: Constitution of Ukraine, restoration, provision, Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, President of Ukraine, regulatory legal act, regulatory support, amendments.
