Masked Forces Storm Ukrainian Navy HQ, Raise Russian Flag and Detain Commander

SEVASTOPOL, Crimea (AP) — Masked Russian-speaking troops on Wednesday seized control of Ukrainian naval headquarters in Crimea after it was stormed by militiamen. Pro-Moscow Crimean authorities also detained the Ukrainian navy commander and reportedly blocked the defense minister and another government official from traveling to the peninsula in what they said was a bid to defuse tensions.

Ukraine’s military, which is heavily outnumbered in Crimea, has come under increased pressure since the region was nominally incorporated into Russia on Tuesday.

Putin stresses that Russia needs Arctic presence to guard against U.S. threat

Putin has ordered a Soviet-era military base reopened in the Arctic as part of a drive to make the northern coast a global shipping route and secure the region’s vast energy resources. “Not only are there major economic interests for our country there…it is also an important part of our defense capability,” Putin told a meeting of university students in Moscow. “There are (U.S.) submarines there and they carry missiles,” the Russian leader said. “It only takes 15-16 minutes for U.S. missiles to reach Moscow from the Barents Sea.
