Ukraine federalisation referendum may be held on May 25


Head of the Verkhovna Rada Alexander Turchinov does not exclude that the referendum on Ukraine’s federalisation may be held if the Parliament decides to do it.

Turchinov announced it at a meeting of faction leaders and heads of parliamentary committees, UNIAN reports. Turchinov is sure that the majority of Ukrainians would vote for an independent, democratic and unitary Ukraine if the referendum was held.

Ukrainians ‘are ready to resist the aggressor attempting to compromise our territorial integrity’, Tucrchinov thinks.
