Ukraine has accused Russia of carrying out an armed invasion by sending naval forces to occupy Sevastopol airport in the Crimea region.
Russia’s Black Sea Fleet denies its servicemen are blocking the airport.
Another Crimean airport, Simferopol, has also been occupied by armed men, thought to be pro-Russia militia.
(Reuters) – Armed men took control of two airports in the Crimea region on Friday in what the new Ukrainian leadership described as an invasion by Moscow’s forces, and ousted President Viktor Yanukovich surfaced in Russia after a week on the run.
Yanukovich said Russia should use all means at its disposal to stop the chaos in Ukraine as tension rose on the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, the only region with an ethnic Russian majority and the last major bastion of resistance to the overthrow of the Moscow-backed leader.
(Is this a Russia, ‘no-flag’ attack, variant of the false flag?)
