SIMFEROPOL, March 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Serbia’s observer said on Sunday the referendum on Crimea’s status was being held freely and corresponded to the norms of international law.

“People expressed their will by democratic means,” Serbian public figure Milenko Baborac said.

“We were surprised by the number of people at the polling stations,” Baborac said.

“Throughout the day we haven't noticed any serious incidents,” he said.

Another Serbian observer, Zoran Radojicic, said they had visited eight polling stations in Simferopol, Alushta and Yalta. “We talked with many members of election commissions and people taking part in the referendum. The referendum is organized very well,” Radojicic said.

“No pressure has been put on voters - this is our main impression,” the observer said.

The referendum is legitimate because the UN Charter and international law give people the right to self-determination. “Unlike in Serbia, where the referendum (on the status of Kosovo) was held under the Western countries’ pressure people vote freely here,” he said.
