on social media

The Crimean Supreme Council’s permanent commission for legislation,
organization and public relations has been instructed to draft a Council
resolution changing its earlier resolution, of Feb. 27, 2014,
N1630-6/14b “On the organization and conduct of the republican (local)
referendum on the questions of improving the status and powers of the
Autonomous Republic of Crimea,” to bring the referendum date forward
from May 25 to Mar. 30.

Furthermore, the Crimean Council presidium has asked Ukraine’s
Verkhovna Rada not to create reasons for removing Crimean power and to
refrain from steps which might escalate the current conflict.

“We are calling on Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, which has assumed
political responsibility for the situation in the country, to refrain
from ill-considered actions which could lead to an escalation of the
conflict. The war against its own people is the gravest of the crimes
for which there can be no justification,” said the statement passed
during the presidium’s Monday session, according to the Crimean Supreme
Council spokesperson.
