MOSCOW, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Rallies welcoming Crimea’s reunification with Russia have brought together about 609,000 people across Russia, the press centre of the Russian Interior Ministry told Tass on Tuesday.
“Some 600,000 Russian nationals took to central squares of their cities today to support the Crimean residents and their choice, made at a referendum on Sunday,” it said. A meeting with a concert on Moscow’s Red Square, bringing together about 120,000 people, was the focal event. “No breach of public order was fixed,” the Interior Ministry said.
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, head of the Crimean State Council Vladimir Konstantinov, Prime Minister of Crimea Sergei Aksyonov and Sevastopol Mayor Alexei Chalyi signed a treaty on Crimea’s accession to the Russian Federation and the establishment of new entities - the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, a city with the federal status.
