UNITED NATIONS : Russia on Saturday vetoed a UN Security Council draft resolution that declared a planned referendum on the status of Ukraine's Crimea region "can have no validity" and urged nations and international organisations not to recognise it. “This is a sad and remarkable moment," Samantha Power, the American ambassador to the United Nations, said after the vote by the 15-member    Security Council.                                                                                (Earlier story on page 11)
