The Constitution of Ukraine is a main priority in the question of stationing the Russian Black Sea fleet in Ukraine, Ukrainian Prime Minister and presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko has said. "The Constitution of Ukraine quite clearly stipulates that foreign military bases cannot be deployed in Ukraine, and this constitutional clause is the fundamental basis of the state's security," she said at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday, when asked to comment on what her attitude to the deployment of the Russian fleet's naval base in Sevastopol would be if she were elected Ukraine's president.
