Crimea referendum brings protestors to Russian Consulate

Marching through the streets of #Toronto from Yonge-Dundas Square, hundreds gathered at the consulate at Bloor and Church Streets to oppose the referendum on Sunday, March 16, 2014. The referendum asked if the Crimea should join Russia which break up Ukraine.

The colours of Ukraine mixed with signs against Russian President Vladimir Putin. Disbelief was expressed at the results of the referendum which show an overwhelming majority voted in favour of joining Russia. Crimea has now declared independence from Ukraine and tension around the world continues to mount over the ongoing events in Eastern Europe.
