Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday will address an assembly of both houses of parliament, as well as heads of regions and representatives of public organizations about the request by Ukraine’s Crimea to become part of Russia, the Kremlin said Monday, RIA Novosti reports.
Crimea’s regional assembly, which ignored an order to dissolve itself by the Ukrainian parliament Saturday, plans to send a formal request to Moscow to join Russia on Monday.
The Russian parliament is expected to announce its decision on Crimea’s fate in the near future, the deputy speaker of the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, said.
To recall, Crimean pro-Russian authorities, headed by self-proclaimed Premier held controversial referendum, on joining Russian Federation.
The whole world, along with Kyiv authorities declare the referendum illegitimate.
