MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The process of nationalizing a number of enterprises in the Republic of Crimea is complete, the republic's Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov said Friday.
Crimea seceded from Ukraine and voted to reunify with Russia in March 2014.
The nationalization concerned state property that formerly belonged to Ukraine and abandoned property on the territory of the republic.
Crimean authorities nationalized Krymkhleb bread-baking complex and the bread-baking complex of the city of Simferopol that belong to separate companies in Ukraine.
The Crimean branch of the Ukrainian telecommunications company Ukrtelecom also underwent nationalization, as well as the Crimean assets of Ukrainian mobile carrier Kyivstar.
Crimea also nationalized the Yalta film studio that was one of the most prolific film studios in the Soviet Union.
The Krymavtotrans transportation company, four bus terminals, and Kerch Switch Works that produces rail track switches were also among entities nationalized by the republic.
The Crimean State Council has prohibited any nationalization after March 1.
