A referendum on the constitution of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic may be held early next year, Miroslav Rudenko, the republic's deputy parliamentary speaker, told Interfax.

"A draft has been prepared already and it was posted on the Internet and is available for public scrutiny. A constitution committee will be formed then to fine-tune the draft and to prepare it for adoption. And then a referendum will be held," Rudenko said.

He said he doubts that the referendum could be held before the end of the year.
