MOSCOW, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin will meet with Crimean MPs on Friday, March 7.
Earlier on Thursday, March 6, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs and Ties with Compatriots Leonid Slutsky told journalists that a delegation of Crimean MPs led by Parliament Speaker Vladimir Konstantinov would visit Moscow immediately after the end of the Crimean parliament’s urgent session.
The delegation planned to travel to Moscow on Thursday to attend a Duma panel discussion on the crisis in Ukraine. However, the visit was postponed due to the Crimean Supreme Council’s session at which deputies took 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.
