Earlier, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yasenyuk announced that all citizens of Ukraine, including those who live in Crimea will be able to vote in the presidential election.
"We took this issue under special control. Ukrainian citizens who reside in the territory of the Republic of Crimea will have the opportunity and the right to vote in the presidential elections," Yatseniuk said.
Meanwhile, Mejlis member Eskender Bariyev noted, Crimean Tatars living in Crimea will be able to take part in presidential elections on border area between the peninsula and mainland Ukraine.
Crimea residents have to take Russian citizenship amid region’s annexation by Russia in March. Some Crimeans, however, refused, and still remain Ukrainian citizens.
