Crimean Parliament Votes to Join Russia and Hold Referendum

Hosted by

President Obama today ordered sanctions that could apply to both Russians and Ukrainians, a move to "impose a cost on Russia and those responsible for the situation in Crimea." No specific names of individuals covered by that order have been announced. Meantime, in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea, parliament voted to hold a referendum to join Russia in just ten days time. Christopher Miller, an editor of the Kyiv Post, is in Simferopol.
