Verkhovna Rada chairman Volodymyr Rybak considers that some issues of the constitutional reform should be put to a national referendum.

"In-depth reforms are impossible without a systematic constitutional reform, as well as the adoption of a number of bills in the key areas of public life in Ukraine," Rybak said during a meeting with the co-rapporteurs of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on compliance with the duties and obligations of the Council of Europe member states.

He also noted that the adoption of amendments to the Constitution will require a constitutional majority in the Verkhovna Rada. "Thus, the preparation of a new edition of the Basic Law, which would be supported by all the political forces represented in the Ukrainian parliament, is crucial," the speaker noted.

However, Rybak did not rule out that some issues of constitutional reform will need nationwide discussion.

In this regard, work of the Constitutional Assembly in cooperation with the experts from the Council of Europe and the Venice Commission is important, he added.
