The Ukrainian party of former boxer turned politician Vitali Klitschko urged Kiev on Tuesday to cut diplomatic ties with Moscow, as Russia moved to admit Crimea into its territory.

"Given the Russian authorities' hostile acts and international practice, we insist that diplomatic relations between Ukraine and Russia be immediately cut," the UDAR party said in a statement, as Russian President Vladimir Putin prepared to sign a treaty making Crimea part of Russia.
