Crimea became a Russian territory after a referendum held in March 2014, with 96.77% of voters in the Republic of Crimea and 95.6% of Sevastopol residents voting in favour of joining Russia.
Crimean authorities held this referendum after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014.
No international body recognises the so-called referendum held on 16th of March 2014. On the 27th of February 2014, when it was announced, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which stated that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. Ukraine as well does not recognise the occupation of its territories, nor the forced acquisition of Russian citizenship in the occupied territories (article 5, paragraph 4).
