Dear Sergey,

you might want to take a look at this paper, although it isn’t exactly on perfects:

Miestamo, Matti & Johan van der Auwera. 2011. Negation and perfective vs. imperfective aspect. In Jesse Mortelmans, Tanja Mortelmans & Walter De Mulder (eds.), From now to eternity (Cahiers Chronos 22), 65-84. Amsterdam/New York: Rodopi.

Best wishes,

Matti Miestamo
