Putin signs treaty Crimea treaty, pledges to not take other Ukraine regions
Tue, 18 Mar 2014 18:03:59 GMT - Moscow RUSSIAN FEDERATION 
(Orginal Source Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a treaty on Tuesday officially making the Crimea region part of Russia again but added Russia does not plan to seize any other Ukrainian territories.

Putin said that Crimea’s referendum, which took place under Russian military control, showed overwhelming support of the people to rejoin Russia. “In the hearts and minds of people, Crimea has always been and remains an inseparable part of Russia.”

The signing comes under intense protest from Kiev, the European Union and the United States. The US and EU imposed sanctions against Russia on Monday.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said the conflict in Crimea had moved from a political to a military stage and he had asked his defense minister to call an urgent meeting with his Russian, U.S. and British counterparts.

Prime Minister David Cameron was critical of the referendum stating “it is completely unacceptable for Russia to use force to change borders, on the basis of a sham referendum held at the barrel of a Russian gun," British Prime Minister David Cameron said.

Crimean parliament is expected to ratify the treaty in the next few days.
