MOSCOW, April 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Acting heads of territorial departments of Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) have been appointed in the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, the service said in a statement Wednesday.
Vladimir Belyayev was appointed acting head of the FAS Crimean territorial department, and Vyacheslav Tokarev was appointed acting head of the Sevastopol department.
The service told Itar-Tass that the appointed officials earlier headed relevant territorial bodies of the Ukrainian Antimonopoly Committee.
The Crimean and Sevastopol departments of Russia’s FAS were established on March 27, 2014.
The Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, a city with a special status on the Crimean Peninsula, where most residents are Russians, signed agreements to reunify Russia on March 18 after a referendum two days earlier in which an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voted to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation.
The events came after a coup in Ukraine in February that occurred after months of anti-government protests, which often turned violent. New people were brought to power in Kiev amid riots, and Crimea’s authorities have refused to recognize the new Ukrainian authorities’ legitimacy.
