Yalta, Ukraine

A poster showing a bunch of flowers joining Russia and Crimea with 'Spring' written over it and a ribbon with the colours of the Russian flag is visible on a street in Yalta on the day of the referendum. The 16 March referendum asked whether people wanted greater autonomy for Crimea or to join the Russian Federation.
The referendum resulted in 95% of voters choosing to join Russia, according to local officials. It was condemned as illegal according to Ukrainian and international law by western governments but Russia's president Putin said he would respect the wish of people in Crimea.
