Constitutional amendments of Ukraine of 2019 and the War

The amendments of 2019 to the Ukrainian Constitution, confirming the European identity of the Ukrainian people and declaring the irreversibility of the European and Euro-Atlantic course of Ukraine, striving the purpose to develop and strengthen a democratic, social, law-based state, proves the Ukrainians’ aspiration to be a member of western democratic community. The Russia's dictator, who caused the war, has been inter alia demanding amendments to Ukraine's Constitution, that would deny its current aspirations. The requirement presented by the aggressor to renounce the commitment to comply with chosen democratic tradition barely could be acceptable. Moreover, would such possible changes generated in the time of aggression be justified or whether the prohibition to change the constitution in the war time could be the salvation later, deciding on the constitutionality of such amendments?

The paper discusses the issue of amending the constitution as a result of an international treaty ending a war on the example of the Polish legal order. The aim is to answer the question whether a peace treaty imposed as a result of an armed conflict, can become an element of the Polish legal order. How should the ratification of such an international agreement look like and whether it is allowed at all in the light of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland.
The Polish Constitution in Article 9 provides that the Republic of Poland respects international law binding upon it. Does this provision requires or does it not allow to obey the international law imposed in this way? Is a change in the Constitution, forced by the threat of war, being the effect of such an imposed international agreement, although carried out in a formally correct procedure, legal? Does the Nation, accepting these provisions as imposed on it as a result of the war act in a free way?
