A Crimean delegation led by Crimean Parliament Chairman Vladimir Konstantynov will visit Moscow on March 6-8, Konstantynov told reporters, according to Interfax.

 The delegation is comprised of Deputy Chairman of Parliament Sergey Tsekov and members of the Parliament Presidium Konstantin Bakharev and Vladimir Klychnykov, Parliament press service reported.

"Not a single person in Russia is indifferent to the current events in Ukraine and Crimea. We have established a serious dialogue with our Russian colleagues. I want to thank them for their involvement, their reaction to our appeals," Konstantynov said.

The sides will discuss humanitarian and energy issues and drug and food supplies, he said.

 "We are also concerned about the approaching holiday season, and we will negotiate this issue, as well. Work on financial support from regions of the Russian Federation is already being done. The Crimean Parliament Presidium decided today how to regulate the funding. All regions of the Russian Federation are ready to assist us. The payment of pensions, salaries and allowances, which is the biggest concern of Crimean residents, will be ensured. Most importantly, no one should bother us with any kind of mobilization," the speaker said.
