He stressed that the decision to change the Crimean government was taken with flagrant breach of the law and failure to comply with regulations. There are no legal ground to prepare and conduct the referendum. Therefore, such decision is an attempt to usurp power.
"By doing so, Sergey Aksenov and Crimean parliament that support external scenarios violated several laws of Ukraine and openly work against the Crimean autonomy and its residents, provoking conflict and confrontation. Therefore, we demand that you immediately return to the legal field and cease to violate the laws of the country, which elected you as deputies of the Autonomy’s parliament," the letter runs.
Klitschko appeals to the Crimean deputies to immediately cancel the decision to hold a referendum and elect as prime minister the person who knows the region and its economy, and has unconditional authority and can offer a development plan for ARC.
