SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine -- With just two days until Ukrainians in Crimea vote on whether to separate from Ukraine and join Russia, anti-referendum protesters and Russia supporters alike were out in force around the region's capital.
Demonstrators stuck to the outskirts of Simferopol, which is largely favorable to Russia.
Anti-Russia protesters, such as students and university professors, are anxious about voicing their opinion.
But that didn't stop some colorful street art.
However, the atmosphere was decidedly pro-Russia downtown, where supporters set up tents and there was an air of excitement ahead of Sunday's vote.
