MOSCOW (AP) - The head of the referendum commission in Ukraine's Crimea says the final results of the Sunday vote show that 97 percent of voters have supported joining Russia.
Mikhail Malyshev said in a televised news conference on Monday that the final tally was 96.8 percent in favor of splitting from Ukraine.
The referendum was widely condemned by Western leaders, who plan to punish Russia with economic sanctions.
