SIMFEROPOL, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The words “prosperity in unity” written on the coat of arms of Crimea, which voted for independence from Ukraine in a referendum on March 16, will mean “prosperity in unity with Russia”, Mikhail Malyshev, head of the committee that organized the plebiscite, said on Monday, March 17.
He believes that the words inscribed on the Crimean coat of arms have now acquired a new meaning. “This is the choice the people of Crimea have made, and the words on the Crimean coat of arms — Prosperity in Unity — will now sound as prosperity in unity with Russia,” he said.
