Pro-Russians Invade Ukrainian Navy Base In Crimea March 19, 2014Leave a comment

Simferopol, Crimea (Fox Weekly) — Just one day after Crimea officially became part of Russia, Pro-Russians have forced into a Ukrainian Navy base. This could be just the beginning of a possibly deadly conflict.

An assistant to the commander of Ukraine’s navy fleet confirmed that close to 300 armed pro-Russian supporters took over the Ukrainian navy’s headquarters in the Crimean port of Sevastopol.

Not too much later, Vladislav Seleznyov, Defense Ministry spokesman in Crimea, said a group of pro-russians had taken Ukrainian navy chief Sergey Gaiduk from the navy headquarters.

This invasion comes just one day after a member of the Ukrainian military was killed, another injured and more captured when masked gunmen forced into their base near the Crimean regional capital, Simferopol.
