Ukraine Crimea referendum

People pass a campaign poster in the Crimean city of Sevastopol on Tuesday depicting the region in red with a swastika and covered in barbed wire and with the colors of the Russian flag with the word "OR" between the two images. Pro-Moscow lawmakers in Crimea voted for independence from Ukraine on Tuesday in a precursor to a referendum this weekend on whether the mainly Russian-speaking region should become part of Russia.
