MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. The Kremlin denies any possibility of a deal with the United States on a new referendum in Crimea in exchange for the lifting of sanctions, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
"This is out of the question," Peskov told reporters.
On March 11, 2014, the legislatures of Crimea and Sevastopol voted for a declaration on independence from Ukraine of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol. A referendum was held on the peninsula five days later when the overwhelming majority of voters (96.7% in Crimea and 95.6% in the city of Sevastopol) supported Crimea’s reunification with Russia. A treaty on the accession of the new territorial entities to the Russian Federation was signed on March 18.
