SEVASTOPOL, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Sevastopol will dismount and send to Kiev Ukraine’s state symbols, head of the city’s Coordinating Council Alexei Chalyi said on Monday.
“We shall be far from vandalism and from copying the followers of the European values in Maidan /Kiev’s Independence Square/,” he told a meeting of the city’s council. “The symbols which contradict this city’s history will be packed accurately to be sent over to the hero-city of Kiev for its further use.”
Chalyi made the statement after an incident a night earlier, where unidentified persons broke a plate in the Ukrainian language at the entrance to the city administration’s building.
On Monday, participants in an emergency session of Sevastopol’s municipal council have voted unanimously for the city’s joining Russia as a separate member of the Federation.
The council approved results of the referendum, where 95.6% of the vote supported Crimea’s joining Russia.
The council has authorised Head of Sevastopol’s Coordinating Council Alexei Chalyi to sign a respective agreement with Russia.
Head of the Crimean Supreme Council’s commission on organisation of the referendum Mikhail Malyshev said without counting Sevastopol votes, Crimea’s 96.77 percent votes had supported the republic’s joining the Russian Federation. The turnout was 83.1%.
