A monument to Crimea’s self-defense forces to be installed in Crimean capital Simferopol.
According to Simferopol city mayor, the draft of the monument is being completed. The monument will be installed at the intersection of Pushkin and Karl Marx. Once the project is ready - it will be put up for public discussion.
"Under the project there will be a monument to self- defense and people who actively participated in the referendum. Those who have made it possible to return Crimea to Russia. Now we are finalizing the project and it will be carried out to a public discussion. I hope Simferopol residents will like it and will give their approval, "- the mayor said.
Crimea was annexed by Russia in March, following a local referendum, which asked the people of Crimea whether they wanted to join Russia as a federal subject, or if they wanted to restore the 1992 Crimean constitution and Crimea's status as a part of Ukraine.
At first, Moscow denied the presence of its troops in Crimea, but later Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged that Russian troops were present in Crimea before the referendum and argued that it was necessary to let Crimeans make the choice on the future of the region.
