MOSCOW, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Communist Party of Russia (KPRF) plans to open its branch in Crimea, first deputy chairman of the party’s Central Committee Ivan Melnikov told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The Izvestiya daily said Crimea’s office of the Communist Party of Ukraine was eyeing its accession to the KPRF.
“We actively cooperate with Crimea’s communists and undoubtedly, will pool our efforts to create a branch of the Communist Party of Russia,” Melnikov said. “Now we are analyzing the situation and drafting an action plan.”
Representatives of Crimea’s office of the Communist Party of Ukraine would take part in a plenary session of the KPRF Central Committee in April, he said.
On Tuesday, Russia signed the agreement on the accession of the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol.
