MOSCOW (Reuters) - More than 95 percent of voters in Ukraine's Crimea region supported union with Russia in a referendum on Sunday, according to partial results quoted by Russian state news agency RIA.
It said the figure was provided by Mikhail Malyshev, head of the referendum commission, after more than half the votes were counted on the Black Sea peninsula where Russian forces have seized control.
