MOSCOW, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea’s Supreme Council delegation led by speaker Volodymyr Konstantinov will visit Moscow shortly, chairman of the State Duma Committee for the CIS Affairs Leonid Slutsky said.

“The Crimean delegation will arrive in Moscow shortly after the parliament’s session ends,” the lawmaker said.

Russian parliamentarians “maintain close contacts with Crimean counterparts, including on humanitarian cooperation”, Slutsky said.

The Crimean Supreme Council’s delegation was scheduled to visit Moscow on March 6, but the visit was postponed due to the extraordinary session at which deputies made a decision on Crimea’s accession to Russia as a constituent entity.

A referendum on the Crimean Autonomous Republic’s accession to Russia as one of the constituent regions is scheduled to take place on March 16.

Crimean residents will be asked two questions: do you support Crimea’s accession to Russia as one of the constituent regions and do you back the return of the Crimean Constitution of 1992 and Crimea’s status as part of Ukraine.

The Supreme Council, a local legislature of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, has decided on Crimea’s accession in the Russian Federation as a constituent entity of the country, First Deputy Prime Minister of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Rustam Temirgaliyev told Itar-Tass.
