Officials wait for voters inside a polling station during the referendum on the status of Ukraine's Crimea region in Bakhchisaray, a town inhabited mostly by Tatars March 16, 2014. Crimeans voted in a referendum on Sunday on whether to break away from Ukraine and join Russia, with Kiev accusing Moscow of rapidly building up its armed forces on the peninsula in "crude violation" of an international treaty. Ethnic Tatars, Sunni Muslims who make up 12 percent of Crimea's population, said they would boycott the vote despite promises by the authorities to give them financial aid and proper land rights.
