MOSCOW, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of the LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky believes that at the referendum that is due on March 16 the absolute majority of Crimean residents will be for the autonomous republic’s accession to Russia.
“This will be an absolutely legitimate expression of the will of the Crimean people. This will be a referendum, not a decision ‘from the top’. l am sure that 99% of the Crimean people will be for Crimea’s return to the structure of the Russian Federation,” he wrote on Twitter on 6 of March.
The politician stressed that “Ukraine’s division is out of the question.” “This is a historic reunification of the peoples,” the leader of the LDPR said.
The principled decision on the Autonomous Republic of Crimea joining the Russian Federation as a subject was made at the meeting of the Supreme Council of Crimea earlier in the day, Rustam Temirgaliyev, the first deputy Prime Minister of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, told Itar-Tass.
The referendum in Crimea on this matter is due on March 16.
