Russia criticises Ukraine's arguments against Crimea referendum

MOSCOW, March 19 (Reuters) - Moscow on Wednesday called Ukraine's argument against the referendum in Crimea to become part of Russia "strange, illogical and legally ignorant".

Russia's Foreign Ministry, in a statement on its website, said that Ukraine, which has said it will not recognise the referendum, was "openly distorting and arbitrarily interpreting the norms of international law". (Reporting by Thomas Grove)
