Russian Lawmakers seal Annexation of Crimea

The Russian parliament’s lower house has endorsed the country’s annexation of Crimea. The Kremlin-controlled State Duma voted to allow Crimea to join Russia following a quick discussion in which members assailed the Ukrainian authorities. The merger needs to be rubber-stamped by the upper house and signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, formalities expected to be completed by the end of the week.
The endorsement follows Crimea’s referendum last weekend where there was overwhelming support for breaking off from Ukraine and joining Russia.
The vote, held just two weeks after the Black Sea peninsula was overtaken by Russian forces, has been rejected as unlawful by Ukraine and Western powers. The United States and the European Union have responded by slapping some limited sanctions on Russia.
