Simferopol (QHA) -

Russian ruble may become state currency in Crimea, after the peninsula joins Russian Federation, vice Prime Minister of Crimea Rustam Temirgaliev told at the press conference March 6.

The statement comes hours after Crimean self-proclaimed Parliament voted for joining Crimea to Russian Federation.

Temirgaliev stressed, there won’t be any arrears of wages in Crimea.

To recall, on March 6 Crimean Parliament took a historic decision- for the accession of Crimea to the Russian Federation. 

78 out of 81 deputies voted for this decision.

Still, Ukrainian government considers Crimean Parliament illegitimate, so does all its decisions.
