SIMFEROPOL, March 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Voters’ database blocking in Crimea’s Autonomous Republic and in Sevastopol has not had any impact on preparations for a referendum on the accession to Russia as a constituent entity on March 16, first deputy chairman of the Crimean Supreme Council Grigory Ioffe told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Voters’ lists are at local commissions, said Ioffe, who heads the working group for referendum peparations.
“People, who work at the Central Election Commission, are not clever, mildly speaking, if they make such statements. They do not understand the elections were held in Crimea several times. Thousands of lists’ copies are at local commissions,” he said.
Ukraine’s Central Election Commission said on Thursday, March 6, that it had blocked the access to voters’ database for the Crimean authorities in order to prevent the referendum of March 16. The Ukrainian authorities consider the referendum illegal.
The Central Election Commission made a statement after deputies of the Crimean Supreme Council had voted for acceding to Russia as one of the constituent regions and holding the referendum. Crimean residents will be asked two questions: do you support Crimea’s accession to Russia as one of the constituent regions and do you back the return of the Crimean Constitution of 1992 and Crimea’s status as part of Ukraine.
