WASHINGTON, March 16, 9:50 /ITAR-TASS/. The overwhelming majority of Crimean residents plan to vote for reunification with Russia at a referendum in Crimea on Sunday, the results of a sociological survey which international sociological service GfK conducted on the peninsula on Thursday and Friday suggested on Sunday.
According to GfK survey results, 70 percent of Crimean residents who are going to participate in a plebiscite plan to vote for Crimea’s reunification with the Russian Federation. Eleven percent of voters will support preservation of the peninsula’s status as part of Ukraine.
If the question about Crimea’s independence had also been put for a referendum 19 percent of peninsula’s residents would have voted for this, GfK reported. However, all the same 54 percent of those who are going to participate in the voting would vote for reunification with Russia.
Two questions are put for a referendum that will be held in Crimea on Sunday:
1. Do you support Crimea’s reunification with the Russian Federation with the status of a constituent entity of the Russian Federation?
