MOSCOW, March 14 (Reuters) - A U.S.-backed draft U.N. resolution that would declare Sunday's referendum on whether Ukraine's Crimea region should join Russia is "unacceptable", Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov was quoted as saying on Friday.

"The main thing is that this draft resolution contains a call to reject the results of the referendum in Crimea. For this reason, naturally, such a resolution is unacceptable for us," Interfax quoted Gatilov as saying. (Writing by Steve Gutterman; Editing by Alison Williams)
