MOSCOW, March 07. /ITAR-TASS/. If Crimea’s residents vote for the accession to Russia at a referendum, their move will be upheld by the country, leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) Vladimir Zhirinovsky said.
“I assure you that everything will be how the Crimean people want it to be. No one falters,” Zhirinovsky said at a meeting with a delegation with the Crimean Supreme Council on Friday.
The Crimean delegation led by the Supreme Council’s speaker, Volodymyr Konstantinov, has arrived in Moscow to meet Russian colleagues.
“Moscow’s position is firm: if we see you are ready to make such decision, it will be supported,” Zhirinovsky said. “We do not mean Ukraine’s division. We mean Crimea’s return,” the LDPR leader said. “Millions of people will go to the Crimea for vacation,” he said.
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.
