  1. Ukrainian Leader Heads to U.S. as Crimean Flights Are Suspended

    Russian authorities are refusing to speak to their Ukrainian counterparts, and flights into Crimea have been suspended, unless they come from Russia, reports say.

Western leaders fear more violence and mayhem in the wake of the vote, which they say defies Ukraine’s constitution and international law.
