MOSCOW, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. All legal decisions necessary for Crimea’s accession to the Russian Federation will be adopted promptly, Deputy Speaker of the Russian State Duma Sergei Neverov told reporters on Monday.
“All necessary legal decisions following the referendum [in Crimea] will be adopted the most promptly,” he said.
“Results of the referendum in Crimea have demonstrated clearly that Crimea’s people see their future only with the republic being a part of the Russian Federation; the people have voted for the reunification of the people who have always lived in one country," Neverov added.
“The number of people who chose to come to the voting stations to support Crimea’s accession to Russia speaks for itself. This is a response to those who have been trying to interfere with the people’s choice of their future, the future of their children,” Neverov said. “We share the future - in this country, where laws are observed, where rights and freedoms are guaranteed, where the leader is strong, and whose principal position made it possible to restore the historic justice,” he continued.
With 75% of the ballots processed, 95.7% of voters supported Crimea’s accession to the Russian Federation. The turnout was almost 82%, head of Crimea’s Commission on Referendum Organization Mikhail Malyshev told reporters on Monday.
