Speaker of the parliament Arseny Yatsenyuk stands against the change of Crimea’s status from the autonomous republic into a region of Ukraine. Press office of the VR reported.

Yatsenyuk underlined that the status of Crimea is registered in the Constitution and “speculation around this question will not add stability in the Ukrainian society and foreign-policy authority” of Ukraine.

According to the Speaker, “separatism and antinational mood in Crimea are caused by economic backwardness. Yatsenyuk considers that the state must focus on the social and economic development of Crimea, as it is the guarantee of both its stability as of the autonomy and Ukraine in general.

Speaker assures he intends to insist on “real filling on Crimean budget” during the process of formation of the state budget for 2009.

Earlier the activists of the all-Ukrainian union “Freedom” called the Speaker and leaders of the democratic coalition to submit for consideration a referendum on recognizing
Crimea a region of Ukraine.
