No one supports a military response: Ukraine PM

The interim prime minister of Ukraine has told CNBC that he does not want to launch a military response to Russia's occupation of Crimea, one day after the region voted to join the Russian Federation in a disputed referendum.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk was speaking after Russian news outlets reported on Sunday that 95.5 percent of Crimeans voted to break away from Ukraine. Russia's lower house of parliament stated that it would pass legislation allowing Crimea to join the nation in the "very near future."
