KIEV, March 11 (Reuters) - Ukraine's parliament on Tuesday warned the regional assembly in Crimea, which is now controlled by pro-Russia forces, that it faces dissolution unless it cancels a referendum it has called to join the region to Russia.

A resolution, supported by a parliamentary vote, gave the rebel Crimean parliament until Wednesday to call off the referendum, due to take place on March 16.
