The decision of the Supreme Council of Crimea on annexation to the Russian Federation should be secured by the referendum, head of the Supreme Council of Crimea, Vladimir Konstantinov, told RIA Novosti.

Thursday, the Crimean Supreme Council decided to address an appeal on Crimea’s joining Russia as a subject of the Russian Federation to President of Russia Vladimir Putin and the Federal Assembly.

The resolution comes into force from the day of its adoption. “The deputies have adopted today's decision as responsible politicians. They have unanimously called for reunification with Russia, and we hope that the referendum of March 16 will secure our decision. We live here and know the situation better,” Konstantinov told RIA Novosti.
