Georgia does not recognise the referendum that was held in Ukraine's autonomous republic of Crimea on March 16, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
 It says that the ministry "once again firmly supports Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity."

The referendum on the issue of the status of Crimea that was held on Sunday had the voter turnout of more than 81 percent. 

Some 70 observers from 23 countries were monitoring the referendum. Head of the commission on the organisation of the plebiscite of the Crimean Supreme Council Mikhail Malyshev told reporters that 75 percent of the ballots had been processed. 

"A total of 95.7 percent of Crimean residents voted for the reunification with Russia, 3.2 percent supported the republic's preservation within Ukraine and 1.1 percent of the ballots have been recognised invalid. These data do not include the voting results in Sevastopol.
