Sevastopol Mayor claimed to a press conference in Moscow

The population of Crimea is opposed to the idea of becoming a part of Russia. Sevastopol Mayor Serhiy Kunitsyn claimed this to a press conference in Moscow on Monday.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said: “I would not say about all people, but the recent polls in Crimea indicate that the overwhelming majority of people do not support separating [from Ukraine] and returning Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia”.

According to S.Kunitsyn, 58% of ethnic Russians live in Crimea. At the same time, he stressed, the majority of Crimena residents support friendly relations rather than becoming a part of Russia.
