Yanukovych to hold plebiscites not only on this issue, but also on other subjects
Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has said he does not rule out the possibility of holding a referendum on the stationing of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine after the necessary legislative framework is adopted for this in future.
"As soon as the respective legislative framework is adopted, a referendum will be held. Of course, there will be a lot of issues on which we'll have to compare views with the Ukrainian people," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday, while commenting on the possibility of holding a referendum on the Black Sea Fleet.
Yanukovych said he planned to hold plebiscites not only on this issue, but also on other subjects.
