Top Lawmaker: Russia Would Welcome Crimea

by Wochit 1:00 mins

Russia rallied support Friday for a Crimean bid to secede from Ukraine, with Russia's top lawmaker assuring her Crimean counterpart that the region would be welcomed as "an absolutely equal subject of the Russian Federation." United States President Barack Obama: Across Red Square, 65,000 people waved Russian flags, chanting "Crimea is Russia!" The strategic peninsula in southern Ukraine has become the flashpoint in the battle for Ukraine, where three months of protests sent President Viktor Yanukovych fleeing to Russia. Russia calls the new Ukrainian government illegitimate, and has seized control of Crimea, where it has a major naval base on the Black Sea.
