The beginning of military action in Iraq will not affect the March 23 referendum in Chechnya, the Chechen government's press service quoted Premier of Chechnya Anatoly Popov as saying.
"War in Iraq will not affect the adoption of our republican Constitution, a vital issue for our people," said Popov. He added that he was convinced the referendum would take place and people would take part in it.
In advance of the referendum, Popov keeps touring the republic's districts. On Thursday, he paid visits to the districts of Urus-Martan, Achkhoi-Martan, and Sunzha.
According to his words, practically all the districts are ready for the referendum.
