SEVASTOPOL, March 05, /ITAR-TASS/. The newly created municipal police in the Crimean city of Sevastopol will ensure law and order in the city during a referendum on Crimea’s status due to be held on March 30, Ivan Komelov, a member of the city’s coordination committee, told a rally in front of the city administration on Wednesday.
“The Sevastopol police are ready to ensure security, law and order in the city, including during the referendum,” he stressed, adding that Sevastopol’s Mayor Alexei Chaly and a team of lawyers were working on the wording of questions to be put for voting at the referendum. As soon as this work was done, the questions would be made public in the mass media, he noted.
“As for the referendum procedure, it will be the competence of the Sevastopol territorial election commission. As soon as the questions are made public, it will start preparations for the referendum,” Komelov said, adding that he had no information about the presence of foreign observers, who were to be registered under the established procedure.
“We are not trying to hide from anyone and are doing everything openly,” he noted.
The rally in Sevastopol was held to express support to all Ukraine’s Russian-speaking people and to thank Russia for its support.
