  1. Russian Military Reportedly Patrol Crimea Airport

    Ukraine’s interior minister has accused Russia of “occupying” Belbek International Airport in the Crimea port city of Sevastopol, an action he sees as tantamount to “armed invasion.” The action has fueled fears of Crimean secession a day after armed men raised the Russian flag over the Ukraine’s only Russian-majority region. Unidentified armed men were also spotted on Friday at another airport in the Crimean capital Simferopol. Since fugitive and former president Viktor Yanukovych fled last week, Kiev has been relatively calm. But many fear that the latest developments could trigger a civil war.
