Putin is not yet planning separate events in honor of Defender of Crimea Day

MOSCOW, February 26 No separate events, Russian President Vladimir Putin does not yet have anything related to the Day of Defender of Crimea; the Kremlin will inform about them as they appear, press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
“There are no separate events now. As they appear, we will inform you,” he said.
Crimea became a Russian region in March 2014 following the results of a referendum after the coup in Ukraine. In the 2014 referendum, 96.77% of voters in Crimea and 95.6% in Sevastopol were in favor of joining Russia. Ukraine still considers Crimea its temporarily occupied territory, and many Western countries support Kyiv on this issue. The Russian leadership has repeatedly stated that the residents of Crimea voted for reunification with Russia democratically, in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Crimea issue is “finally closed.”
