Today’s best European front pages on Crimea and Serbia

Most of European dailies have their main headline on the referendum held on 16 march in Crimea. With no surprise, the majority of voters chose to join Russia — thus leaving Ukraine. Only Serbian dailies dedicate their front pages to Sunday's general elections, won by Vice-prime minister's Aleksandr Vučić's Serbian progressive party (SNS).
