Crimea's sunday referendum vote to secede from Ukraine came in as expected with early exit polls showing roughly 90% in favor of joining Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin said he would respect the outcome of the referendum, but the European Union condemned the vote immediately, adding sanctions against Russia were likely to be announced on Monday. The Ukrainian government restricted entry by Russians on the eastern border out of concern Moscow was sending rabble-rousers into the country to stir up anti-Kiev sentiment.
