Moscow (CNN) -- Never mind what the West thinks -- the Kremlin says Ukraine's Crimea region is now part of Russia.
A signing ceremony Tuesday between Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Prime Minister of Crimea and the mayor of the city of Sevastopol made it official, the Kremlin said in a statement.
Crimea and Sevastopol, where the Russian Black Sea fleet is based, are now part of the Russian Federation, it said.
The step follows a contested referendum held in Crimea on Sunday with only 10 days' notice.

Does this mean another strongly-worded letter from Barry? Or even the U.N.?
Or does John F'n Ketchup get to once again climb on the big bird and head over to Russia where he won't be given the time of day?
