SIMFEROPOL, March 15, 14:33 /ITAR-TASS/. Crimean Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov in his address to the republic's population called for coming to the polls on March 16 and making the choice that descendants would be proud of.
"Do not fear anything. The government of the autonomous republic will do everything for the vote to be held calmly, peacefully and democratically," he assured.
The entire world is looking at Crimea. Many observers from Russia, CIS countries and international organizations and media representatives from all over the world would monitor the referendum, he noted.
Aksyonov called for coming to the polls and making a free choice "irrespective of the nationality and faith".
"They say times are not chosen. However, we choose an own way. Let us make our choice together, the choice our descendants will be proud of. Let us all go to the referendum,” the premier said in his televised address.
