State Duma deputy, and former Prosecutor of the Crimea, Natalia Poklonskaya responded to Ksenia Sobchak ‘s proposition to holding a repeated referendum in the Crimea, by mirroring the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin .

“Our president, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, has clearly said that the status of Crimea and Sevastopol is not a point of deliberation.” Poklonskaya said.

The reunification of Crimea with Russia occurred in 2014 after holding a referendum on the peninsula. Then 96.77% of  Crimean residents and 95.6% of Sevastopol voted in favour.

TV presenter Sobchak, who is going to run for president in 2018, is confident that Russia has violated international obligations, and the Crimea is legally Ukrainian. In this regard, she proposed holding another referendum.
