Volodymyr Konstantinov: the stay of Crimea as part of Ukraine was illegal

CrimeaPRESS reports:

The stay of Crimea as part of independent Ukraine was illegal: the will of the Crimeans, expressed during the 1991 referendum, was grossly distorted, said RIA News Chairman of the State Council of the Republic of Crimea Vladimir Konstantinov.

Earlier, he instructed to work out an appeal to the Constitutional Court of Russia to cancel the 1954 decree on the transfer of the peninsula to Ukraine. According to him, the process of transferring the Crimea to the Ukrainian SSR in 1954 was not legally formalized, the violations committed are so gross and flagrant that the rationale for canceling the decision will not take much time.

The illegality of the stay of Crimea as part of independent Ukraine is obviousKonstantinov told RIA Novosti.

He recalled that on January 20, 1991, a historic referendum was held in Crimea, which brought up a single question: “Are you in favor of restoring the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic as a subject of the USSR and a member of the Union Treaty?«. Konstantinov stressed that at that time 81% of Crimean voters took part in the referendum, of which more than 93% voted for autonomy and the right to determine their own political destiny.

Then the Crimeans came out in favor of remaining in the USSR, the successor of which, as you know, is Russia. There was no talk of any Ukraine at that time, but the political will of the Crimeans was grossly distorted, and union legislation was violated, which led to the criminal collapse of the USSR. In the end, we achieved our goal, albeit after a long 23 years— said the head of the republican parliament.
