Ukrainian and Russian troops standoff in Crimea

The situation in Crimea escalated today with Russian troops surrounding a Ukrainian infantry base in Perevalnoe. The troops in the base set up positions by the gates with armour despite being outnumbered by the surrounding Russian troops.

In response to Russia’s swell in troop numbers in the Crimea, Ukraine has called up its military reservists.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Ukraine was “on the brink of disaster”.

Ukrainian national security officials have taken several measures during the situation including the military being brought to “full combat readiness” and a security operation around key sites.
