KIEV, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. First deputy chief of the Ukrainian armed forces General Staff, Gennady Vorobyov, held talks on Tuesday with Deputy Russian Defense Minister Army General Dmitry Bulgakov, a Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman reported.
“The procedure for Ukrainian servicemen and their family members to leave Crimea, as well as to withdraw armaments, military hardware and Ukrainian armed forces property was discussed,” the spokesman told Itar-Tass.
The Republic of Crimea, where most residents are Russians, held a referendum on March 16.

Russia’s upper house of parliament ratified it on March 21.
