Ukraine: Two rallies divide Moscow's views on Crimea

15 March 2014 Last updated at 14:34 GMT

Thousands of people have been attending a rally in the Russian capital Moscow to oppose its intervention in Ukraine a day before the region of Crimea votes to secede in favour of joining Russia.

Holding Russian and Ukrainian flags, they shouted: "The occupation of Crimea is Russia's disgrace". A smaller pro-Moscow rally was also being held.
