“In accordance with power I am  conferred on, I have stopped the decision of the Crimean parliament. The Verkhovna
Rada of Ukraine will initiate  dissolution of the parliament of the
Autonomous Republic of Crimea. We will defend the inviolability of the
Ukrainian territory,” he said in a televised address on Thursday
evening.

“The Supreme Council of Crimea, which is completely controlled by the
servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces, has made an illegal decision to
hold a referendum. The referendum in Crimea on the question: ‘Do you
support the inclusion of Crimea in the Russian Federation?’ This
decision is unlawful and void. The decision contradicts the will of
Ukrainians and the interests of citizens living in the autonomy,”
Turchynov said.
