(Reuters) / 16 March 2014 Moscow, which has sent military forces to Crimea, is backing Sundays referendum, which would transfer control of the region from Ukraine to Russia. Russia on Saturday vetoed a UN Security Council draft resolution that declared a planned referendum on the status of Ukraine's Crimea region "can have no validity" and urged nations and international organisations not to recognise it.
