SIMFEROPOL, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea's parliament, the Supreme Council, said in a resolution on Monday that is terminating the operation of Ukraine’s state power bodies on Crimea’s territory.
Crimea held a referendum on whether to secede from Ukraine and become part of Russia on Sunday. About 97% of voters chose the option of joining the Russian Federation. Crimea’s Supreme Council on Monday declared Crimea an independent sovereign state.
“The operation of Ukraine’s state bodies on the territory of Crimea is terminated. Their powers, property and funds are transferred to the state bodies of the Republic of Crimea defined by the government of the Republic of Crimea,” the Council said in a resolution.
In line with the resolution, “Ukraine’s laws are not used, the decisions of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada [Ukrainian parliament] and other Ukrainian state power bodies adopted after February 21, 2014 are not implemented” in Crimea from Monday.
Other Ukrainian laws except for the above-mentioned ones “are used on the territory of the Republic of Crimea until relevant normative acts of the Republic of Crimea are adopted,” the resolution says.
