UCC Denounces Crimean “Referendum”

March 16, 2014 (Toronto) -The “referendum” which took place in Crimea Sunday under the illegal occupation of Russian armed forces who have invaded sovereign Ukrainian territory, is unconstitutional, illegal and illegitimate. The Constitutional Court of Ukraine ruled the “referendum” to be in breach of several provisions of the Constitution of Ukraine. The “referendum” is also a breach of international law and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress rejects its results.
