Russia in patriotic fervor over Crimea

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia has been swept up in patriotic fervor for bringing Crimea, its old imperial jewel, back into its territory – as tens of thousands of people thronged Red Square today waving flags and chanting “Crimea is Russia!” while a parliamentary leader promised the peninsula would be welcomed as an “equal subject” of Russia. Crimea now belongs to Ukraine, but the local parliament has called a March 16 referendum on whether the semi-autonomous region should join Russia, a move President Barack Obama has called a violation of international law.
