President Petro Poroshenko said that Ukraine in the foreseeable future will hold referendums on joining NATO and on membership in the European Union. "I do not doubt that in the foreseeable future, referenda will definitely be held in Ukraine on joining NATO," Poroshenko said speaking at the Prosecutor-General's Office on the occasion of the Day of Prosecutor's Office workers.

 "I am convinced that the people of Ukraine will support this initiative and membership in the European Union. The results of the voting will be just as convincingly positive as the referendum on independence already inscribed in the annals of history," he stressed

Poroshenko has repeatedly promised to hold a referendum on NATO membership but he never raised the issue of a referendum on joining the EU.
