Today’s best European front pages

Most of European dailies headline on Sunday's referendum in Crimea, when voters will be asked if they agree on their region to join Russia or if they want to restore the 1992 Crimean constitution while remaining within Ukraine. The outcome, likely to be in favor of the former solution according to experts, might trigger to more tension between Russia and the West on Ukraine.
