MOSCOW, March 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Muscovites hung out flags and posters in support of the decision by Crimean residents to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. Russian tricolors could be seen in all districts of Moscow, reflecting city residents' emotions in connection with Crimea's reintegration into Russia.
Many companies, cafes and shops hoisted Russian flags, and cars sported posters reading "Sevastopol-Crimea-Russia," "Hurray Crimea" and "Crimea is Russia."
Earlier reports said thousands of people across the country participated in rallies supporting Russia's reunification with Crimea.
