MOSCOW, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. State Duma lower house of Russian parliament will support a referendum in Crimea in its statement which the lower house will consider on March 18, A Just Russia leader Sergey Mironov told reporters on Monday.
“The State Duma is drafting a statement on the situation in Crimea, we voice definite support to referendum results, ask current Crimean authorities to ensure security of people, equality and normal socio-economic conditions of life for all Crimean residents,” he said.
Mironov also noted that he had drafted an amendment to the document. In his words, current document “says nothing about our intention as quickly as possible after all official and required documents to conduct legal procedures to process referendum results are received.”
Two questions were put for a referendum in Crimea on March 16:
1. Do you support reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation with the status of a constituent entity of the Russian Federation?
