Russian troops storm Ukrainian military base in Crimea Ukraine
Date: March 2, 2014
Location: Sevastopol, Crimea Ukraine
05.30 03.02.14 Russian troops illegally entered the territory of the military unit #191 training unit of the Ukrainian Navy in order to seize the weaponry. Attempted exportation of arms was successfully prevented by using blocking APC and Russian military truck.
Ukrainian officers became a ” human shield ” defending the unit and did not give the Russian military tow it to the side. Despite the fact that Russian troops shoot twice in the air , Ukrainian officers didn’t retreat and did not react to the provocation of a military seazure scenario.
Thus it was possible to reach a compromise: Russian special forces left the territory of the military unit, and military trucks loaded full of weapons secured by Ukrainian troops were sent to the 174th base storage Ukrainian Navy.
