Crimean forces take Ukrainian navy HQ

Published: 03.19.14, 11:17 / Israel News

SEVASTOPOL - Crimea's self-defense forces on Wednesday stormed the Ukrainian navy headquarters in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol, taking possession without resistance a day after Russia signed a treaty with local authorities to annex the region.


An Associated Press photographer witnessed several hundred self-defense forces take down the gate and make their way onto the headquarters' premises. They then raised the Russian flag on the square by the headquarters.


The unarmed Crimean self-defense forces waited for an hour on the square before they moved to storm the headquarters, but Ukrainian servicemen did not offer any resistance. (AP)
