Vitali Klitschko, UDAR (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform) party leader and former heavy weight boxer, looks down as a journalists asks a question during a news conference at a hotel in Kiev, Ukraine, Monday, March 17, 2014. Ukraine's Crimean peninsula declared itself independent Monday after its residents voted overwhelmingly to secede and join Russia, while the United States and the European Union slapped sanctions against some of those who promoted the divisive referendum. In Kiev, Ukraine's new government dismissed Russia's proposal Monday as unacceptable, saying it "looks like an ultimatum." (AP Photo/David Azia) less
