Russian Forces Take Over Crimea


Ukraine’s western-backed new government accused Russia of a “military invasion and occupation” on Friday.

“Around 400 people are in the airport of Belbek now. They have occupied runway and all plane movements have been stopped,”
Interfax news agency quoted a military source as saying.

Ousted president Yanukovich said today “it is not correct” to tell Moscow what to do, but believes “Russia cannot abandon Ukraine to its fate and should use all possible means to prevent chaos and terror in its neighboring country.”
