Vox Pop: Crimea's future

On March 16, Crimea will hold a referendum in which residents will decide if they want to be part of Russia or Ukraine. RBTH’s correspondent asked the locals how they would like to see events in Crimea turn out.


At an extraordinary meeting on March 6, the Supreme Council of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea adopted an address to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking him whether Russia is ready to accept Crimea as a member of the Russian Federation.

Sevastopol’s city administration has decided to take part in the all-Crimean referendum, scheduled for March 16. Two questions will be considered in the referendum: 1) Do you support reunification of Crimea with Russia as a constituent of the Russian Federation? 2) Do you support the reinstatement of the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Crimea and the Crimean status as a part of Ukraine?

Some of the Crimea’s residents have already answered these questions in our video.
