Crimea begins vote on secession from Ukraine

Published: 03.16.14, 08:35 / Israel News

Residents of Ukraine's Crimea region are voting in a contentious referendum on whether to split off and seek annexation by Russia.

 

The Sunday vote is regarded as illegitimate both by the acting Ukrainian government and by the West, but is widely expected to pass. Crimea is predominantly ethnic Russian, and its residents say they fear that the government that took over when pro-Russia President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted last month will oppress them.
