In the wake of the seizure of its administrative buildings, the Crimean parliament is to hold a referendum to determine its future, Russia Today reports.

It quotes Oksana Korniychuk, press secretary for the head for the parliament, as saying:

    According to the underlying principles of democracy, the presidium of the Crimean parliament considers that the only possible way out of the situation on the ground is applying the principles of direct rule of the people. We are confident that only by holding an All-Crimean referendum on the issue of improving the status of the Autonomy and expanding its powers Crimeans will be able to determine the future of the Autonomy on their own and without any external pressure.


Isn;t it democracy in working?
