MOSCOW, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow and Sevastopol will sign an agreement on cooperation, making it possible for relations between the cities to reach a totally new level, Moscow's Mayor Sergei Sobyanin told the city government on Tuesday.
Sobyanin said he had held several phone conversations with his counterpart from the Ukrainian city of Sevastopol, Aleksei Chalyi.
“We have agreed to hold a meeting,” Sobyanin said. “I hope he will come to Moscow and we will draft a new agreement between Sevastopol and Moscow, bringing these relations to an entirely new level.”
The Sevastopol City Council decided Thursday to hold a referendum on accession to Russia, with 49 deputies out of the 50 present in the session hall voting for the decision. The public vote will take place on March 16, on the same day that the Crimea will hold a similar referendum of its own.
