The article aims at demostrating that the amendments introduced in the 1996 Constitution of Ukraine where they affected the form of government on the one hand were not always implemented in full compliance with the procedure established by the same Constitution while on the other their adoption was influenced both by the “traditionalµ geopolitical ties of Ukraine and its new relations with various regional and international organizations. Finally the conditionality exerted by such “externalµ orders on ukrainian constitutional development once again highlights that the recent processes of constitution making could be better understood also applying the transnational constitutional law new methodological approach.
