Earlier this week, Ukraine's government finally grasped reality and ordered its troops out of Crimea. But by the time of the evacuation order, Russia's military had already started booting Ukrainian troops from their bases or getting them to switch sides. VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky met with Ukrainian Marines in Feodosia as they decided whether to remain loyal to their country or break their oath of allegiance to stay with their families in Crimea.

This is an invasion where did the people get military ant-itank and explosives. And why are the "pro Russia Ukrainian civilians" wearing Russian uniforms and masks. Long live Ukraine and freedom to it's people.

I don't see why people say that this is not Russia's fault the only reason they took it was Ukraine wanted independence from Russia and was going to join nato

I am so pissed off hearing of these self defense assholes who have no authority what so ever. The Ukraine soldiers just allowed this to happen if you wanted to keep your country fight! These so called self defense asshole should be shot they have no authority! Restore Authority they want to play soldier well they can have it 6 feet under!

Despite overwhelming support within Crimea to join the Russian Federation, Ukrainian forces refused to give up their naval and airbases to the Russians last week. In this dispatch, VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky visits the Belbek airbase, which was being overrun by Cossacks and members of Russian forces, who believe they had liberated Crimea — though local forces don't seem to agree.
