BRUSSELS, December 15. /TASS/. The issue of Ukraine’s possible accession to NATO requires a nationwide referendum, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk said Monday after a meeting in the Belgian capital with the North Atlantic alliance’s secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg.

“In line with current Ukrainian legislation, we will have to hold a referendum on the proposed agenda of NATO membership,” Yatsenyuk said.

He said that in order to join NATO, Ukraine also has to conduct reforms in the sphere of security, politics, economics and justice in order to bring them in line with NATO standards.

“We will keep following that roadmap,” Yatsenyuk said.

He said that “if the Ukrainian people speaks in favor of joining NATO in the referendum, this will allow Kiev to not only request but demand NATO membership.”.
