Top Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksander Turchynov believes that the initiative of President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko to carry out a constitutional referendum has no perspective.

O.Turchynov said this to UNIAN on Friday.

“Kuchma, in his time, also organized referendums. And how did it all finish for him?”, O.Turcynov said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Victor Yushchenko, in his interview with Nezavisimaya Gazeta, did not rule out holding an all-Ukrainian referendum to pass constitutional amendments, which he had proposed.
