Crimean Parliament Speaker Vladimir Konstantin said after an extraordinary parliament session that the list of properties that could be repurchased by the Crimean authorities had not yet been defined but this primarily related to the need to ensure water and electricity supplies for Crimean residents.
The list of properties for repurchase will be established by the Crimean Cabinet of Ministers. Property owners will be compensated for the cost of their properties from the regional budget on the basis of a market valuation.
