Five members of Bulgaria's ultranationalist Ataka party will travel to Crimea as monitors of Sunday's referendum for the autonomous province's future.

The leader of the party, Volen Siderov believes the new leadership in Kiev is illegitimate, and the result of a coup carried out by extremists, terrorists, and pro-fascist organizations, the daily 24Chasa reports.

The referendum in Crimea, a majority ethnic Russian region of Ukraine, will take place on Sunday, with the West proclaiming it unconstitutional.

According to the Bulgarian nationalist leader, if the West recognized Kosovo, it must do the same with Crimea.
