SIMFEROPOL, March 03. /ITAR-TASS/. The Crimea may switch over to Moscow time. The people of the Crimea will have to decide that in a referendum slated for May 30, the press office of Volodymyr Konstantinov, the Crimean parliament’s speaker, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The presidium of the Crimean parliament discussed the forthcoming referendum at a meeting on Monday.
