A Russian military truck broke down the gates of a Ukrainian base in the Crimean port city of Sevastopol and the installation is under siege by Russians on Friday, the Interfax news agency reported. No shots have been fired.
About 100 Ukrainian troops are stationed at the base, Interfax reported, citing a duty officer and Ukraine's defense ministry. About 20 "attackers" entered and some threw stun grenades, the report said. The Ukrainians barricaded themselves inside one of their barracks, and their commander began negotiations, Interfax said.
