BELBEK AIRBASE, Crimea - The commander of Belbek airbase in Crimea said on Saturday he would be taken away by Russian forces for talks after they entered the base with armoured vehicles and automatic rifles.


One Ukrainian was injured in the takeover of the base, which had been one of the last military facilities in Crimea still under Ukrainian control, Ukraine's Colonel Juliy Mamchur told Reuters.


Asked if he thought he would return safely from the talks at an unspecified location - he said: "That remains to be seen. For now we are placing all our weapons in the base's storage." (Reuters)
