SIMFEROPOL, April 02, /ITAR-TASS/. The All-Russia People’s Front set up a regional branch in Crimea on Wednesday, following a decision of the Front’s constituent conference held in Simferopol.
The conference approved the Front’s charter, elected a regional headquarters and a regional audit commission.
“I hope that all citizens of Crimea who are not indifferent to the future of Russia and their native land will be able to participate in our movement,” Andrei Bocharov, the head of the executive committee of the All-Russia People’s Front, said.
The regional headquarters of the All-Russia People’s Front Crimean branch will have three co-chairmen, including Crimea’s Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov; Vladimir Konstantinov, the speaker of the Crimean State Council (parliament), and Rustem Kazakov, the Olympic Greco-Roman Olympic champion.
Speaker Vladimir Konstantinov has described the People’s Front’s creation as a landmark event rather than a formal action.
“The people of Crimea voted in the referendum and in fact created a popular front. We are very patriotic and we love our Motherland, and our Motherland is Russia,” Konstantinov said.
Crimea’s prominent public and political figures are among the co-founders of the Crimean branch of the All-Russia People’s Front.
Earlier on Wednesday, the All Russia People’s Front created a branch in the federal city of Sevastopol following a decision of the Front’s constituent conference which elected a regional headquarters and a regional audit commission.
The regional headquarters of the Sevastopol-based branch of the All Russia People’s Front will have three co-chairmen, including Alexei Chalyi, the people’s mayor of Sevastopol and the city’s acting governor; Viktor Oganesyan, the head of Sevastopol’s education department; as well as Lieutenant-General Valery Yurin, a war pilot and the former Russian Black Sea Fleet’s naval aviation commander.
