AP 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.
