President Vladimir Putin pressed forward on Tuesday with the procedure for bringing  Ukraine's Crimea region into Russia, informing his government and parliament of the Crimean leadership's proposal to join
Russia.

The steps, announced by the Kremlin, came a day after Putin recognised Crimea as an independent state following a referendum in which its voters supported joining Russia. Putin is to
address parliament later on Tuesday.
