Member of the Russian Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky, notorious for his eccentric and chauvinistic statements, is calling for a referendum to be organized in Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia where people would be offered to vote for the countries to be included in the Russian Federation. Zhirinovsky openly announced that the referendum is not an attempt to allow the residents to exercise their democratic rights to voice their wishes, but to give them the opportunity to "agree becoming part of Russia again".
