Simferopol (QHA) -

On February 19, the Crimean Parliament will consider the creation of the working group to make amendments to the Constitution of Crimea and the Constitution of Ukraine for conducting an all-Crimean poll on the status of Crimea.

This was announced during the session of the Presidium of the Crimean Parliament.

The proposal was voiced by Deputy Vladimir Klychnikov.

In his speech he turned to history and said that the decision to transfer Crimea from Soviet Russian Republic to the Soviet Ukrainian Republic 60 years ago was illegal.

According to the deputy, today preserving the sovereignty of Ukraine as well as the future status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea are acute issues.

Speaking about events on Maidan, Klychnikov said that “the nationalists threaten the holy- our heroic history, our great Russian language”.

Further, Klychnikov suggested (1) to create a working group to make amendments to the Constitution of Crimea and the Constitution of Ukraine for conducting an all-Crimean poll on the status of Crimea; and (2) to appeal to the President and the legislative assembly of the Russian Federation to be the guarantors of inviolability of the status of Crimean autonomy and rights and freedoms of Crimean residents.   

Speaker of Crimean Parliament Vladimir Konstantinov supported the proposal.

As reported by us, an all-Crimean round table on the status of Crimea took place in Simferopol at the initiative of exiled ex-president of Crimea Yuriy Meshkov.

Ex-president of Crimea communicated with participant via Skype. In his speech he urged the Crimean organizations to reestablish the Crimean constitution of 1992.

“Our common goal is to mobilize and create the base for future changes. In my understanding, Crimean Public Parliament should be such base. Within it, there should be a body that develops and enforces resolutions of the all-Crimean Referendum of 1991, which proclaimed the Republic of Crimea autonomous and independent. It should also bring back into effect the constitution of 1992. Social network could unite participants of this public movement,”- said Meshkov.
