Obama to Putin: We Won't Recognize Crimea Referendum


U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday night warned his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that the results of the referendum in Crimea would never be recognized by the United States or its allies.

In a phone call which took place after results showed that 95% of Crimea’s residents wanted to join Russia, Obama also hinted at possible additional sanctions on Russia, according to AFP.
