Mon, 17 Mar 2014 17:22:07 GMT - Moscow RUSSIAN FEDERATION 
(Orginal Source BBC) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree recognizing Crimea as a ‘sovereign and independent’ state on Monday. The decree is created one day after the Crimea voted to separate from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation as part of a referendum.

Russia said they would respect the results of the referendum.

Ukraine, the European Union and the United States have rejected the referendum as illegal.
