To put it simple no!
Now if you intend to do it nonetheless, you'll have to make a totally new turret, modify the hull top, modify the hull sides for the firing ports, slightly modify the running gear.
Don't forget that Zvezda's BMPs are just re-released of the old Dragon's kits with all their errors and inaccuracies, just to name a few: wrong sprockets, ill placed hatch right of the driver station.
Zvezda's BMP2 is even worse with wrong add-on armor, ill-placed turret hatches, wrong location of the smoke-dischargers, wrong location for most of the turret vision ports, wrong angle for the troop compartment roof hatches... I stop here.
Anyway if you find one, you can build it but it won't be very accurate.
