Haaretz – Russian troops on Friday stormed a Ukranian military base 5 kilometers from the Ukranian city of Sevastopol, located on the Black Sea coast of the Crimean peninsula. A standoff was resolved without a shot being fired, a witness said.

According to early reports, members of a pro-Russia militia used a truck to break through the gate of the base. The truck got stuck at the gate, and Russian soldiers climbed over it. Some 70 Ukrainian troops were said to still be holding out in the bunkers. The militia troops who broke through the perimeter demanded the Ukrainian soldiers surrender.
