Earlier, various political and non-governmental forces said that the referendum had no sense. The opposition called the people on July 9 not to take part in the voting.

The referndum will be declared void, if less than a half of voters comes to the polling stations. A decision is treated as passed, if more than a half of those who came to vote support it.
