You're reading: Communists propose putting to referendum question on national symbols of Ukraine

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.
