Ukraine crisis: EU ponders Russia sanctions over Crimea vote
EU foreign ministers are due to discuss further sanctions against Russia after a Moscow-backed referendum in Crimea backed a split from Ukraine.
The 28-member bloc is considering a visa ban and an asset freeze against a number of Russian officials.
More than 95% of Crimean voters backed joining Russia, local officials said.
Moscow says it will accept the result, but the EU and US say the vote as illegal in Crimea.
