Members of the Sevastopol City Council approved at their extraordinary session the final results of the March 16 Crimean referendum, whereby over 262,101 Sevastopol voters (95.6 percent of all those who cast votes) favored union with Russia, an Interfax correspondent said on Monday.
"Eighty-nine point five percent of Crimean voters took part in the Crimean referendum. Of this number, 95.6 percent favored reunification with Russia," V. Medvedev told the city council.
The results of the Crimean referendum in Sevastopol were approved by the city council unanimously (61 - "pro").
The city lawmakers also authorized Coordinating council chairman Alexei Chaly to sign on behalf of the city of Sevastopol an international agreement on Sevastopol becoming part of Russia.
The council also decided to re-name itself a legislative assembly as a Russian city with a special status.
Processing of 100 percent ballots from the Crimean referendum showed 96.77 percent voters are in favor of Crimea becoming a part of Russia, Chairman of the Crimean Referendum Commission Mikhail Malyshev said on Monday morning.
