The Communist Party of Ukraine has proposed discussing at a national referendum the question of the country's main state symbols - the emblem and anthem.

Communist Party leader Petro Symonenko said at a press conference in Kharkiv on Thursday that only a referendum can put an end to two decades of disputes regarding these symbols.

In his opinion, the state cannot exist under the symbol, "under which Hitler was met during the war and under which innocent people were killed."

At the same time, Symonenko noted that only people have the right to resolve this question, the press service of the Communist Party reported.
