SIMFEROPOL, March 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea may join Russia as its constituent part already next week, Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov told a news conference in Simferopol on Friday.
He explained that a relevant legal act was likely to be adopted next week, while Crimea’s full integration with Russia, including the adjustment of legislation, could take up to 12 months.
“I believe that the transitional period will last for about a year. It’s going to take up to twelve months the longest,” the Crimean prime minister stressed.
“We are not going to have independence. I believe that Crimea should enter Russia as its constituent entity,” Aksyonov said.
