SIMFEROPOL, UKRAINE - Lawmakers in the embattled Crimean region of Ukraine
said Thursday they will hold a referendum March 16 on whether Crimea should
become part of Russia, a move likely to further ratchet up tensions.
"This is our response to the disorder and lawlessness in Kiev," Sergei
Shuvainikov, a member of the local Crimean legislature, said.
