At an extraordinary plenary session on Thursday, the Supreme Council of Crimea passed a motion of no confidence in the Council of Ministers of Crimea and terminated its powers, a spokesperson for the secretariat of the Crimean parliament Olha Sulnikova said.

According to her, this decision was supported by 55 of the 64 members of the Crimean parliament.

According to the adopted resolution, the Supreme Council of Crimea declared the work of the Council of Ministers of Crimea in 2013 unsatisfactory and therefore passed a motion of no-confidence in the Crimean government.

Under the same decision, the Crimean parliament terminated the powers of the Council of Ministers of Crimea.

In addition, the parliament dismissed Anatoliy Mohyliov as the chairman of the Crimean Council of Ministers pursuant to Article 136 of the Constitution of Ukraine.

The document takes effect on the day on which it is passed.
