SMFEROPOL, March 07, /ITAR-TASS/. The prime minister of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, is certain that the local people will support the proposal for joining Russia, put forward in a referendum due in ten days’ time.
“The autonomy’s legislative assembly made a decision to join the Russian Federation in the capacity of a constituent territory. I am certain that the March 16 referendum will endorse the Crimean legislature’s decision and the people who had given us our current mandate will support us,” Aksyonov said in reply to media questions.
“I am certain about the outcome, but may all procedures be observed. We are open to cooperation with everybody without any exception. Everybody is aware that this voting will be to the benefit and not to somebody’s detriment. Nobody will gain any advantages,” he said.
Aksyonov foresees no problems with coming to terms with the Crimean Tatars.
“There are many soberly-minded people there,” he said.
Earlier in the day the head of the majlis of the Crimean Tatars, Refat Chubarov, called for boycotting the referendum on the issue of joining Russia.
