KIEV, March 07. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office on Thursday filed a charge to a district court in Kiev against the decision of the Supreme Council (parliament) of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea to hold a referendum on Crimea’s accession to Russia, its press service said on Friday.
The press service said in its ruling the Supreme Council had violated legislation, and that the decision was encroaching on Ukraine’s territorial integrity thus necessitating interference of prosecution agencies.
On March 6, Crimea’s Supreme Council asked Moscow to allow the region to become part of the Russian Federation. The issue will be put on a referendum on Crimea’s status, due on March 16.
