Crimea Referendum 'no Surprise' For Russians

What was widely expected to be a referendum under the barrel of guns kicked off quietly Sunday morning in Simferopol, Ukraine's breakaway region of Crimea, as early risers braved the rain to go vote. And while Russian state television said Saturday that pro-Russian defense forces, which had flooded the peninsula since the beginning of the month, were on high alert to prevent "provocations" from pro-Ukrainian forces, not a single armed guard was seen in the vicinity of Polling Station No. 08086, at a gymnasium on Simferopol's Kiev Street.
