WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says a referendum for Ukraine’s Crimea region to separate and become part of Russia would violate international law.

Local government officials in Crimea on Thursday set a March 16 for the referendum vote.

Obama told reporters at the White House that would also violate the Ukrainian constitution.
