Ukrainian soldiers were surrounded by Russian troops at Perevalnoye, one of several stand-offs on the peninsula.
     

Moscow has defended its parliament's approval of President Vladimir Putin's use of military force to protect its citizens in the Crimean Peninsula, an autonomous region of eastern Ukraine with strong loyalty to Russia.

This morning, 150 Russian troops and more than 20 military vehicles surrounded the Ukrainian military base of Perevalnoe, where there was a tense standoff. Ukrainian soldiers drove a BMP-2 armoured infantry fighting vehicle up to the inside gates of the base in response and around 15 of them lined up against the gate.

On the ground, Russian troops controlled all Ukrainian border posts Monday in Crimea, as well as all military facilities and a key ferry terminal, cementing their stranglehold on the strategic Ukrainian peninsula.

They also demanded that the crew of two Ukrainian warships immediately surrender or be stormed and seized, according to Maksim Prauta, the Ukrainian defense ministry spokesman.

Four Russian navy ships in Sevastopol's harbor were blocking Ukraine's anti-submarine warship Ternopil and the command ship Slavutych, waiting for their answers, he said.
