Russia has invaded the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine and taken over its civilian and military infrastructure. Not a shot has been fired so far, but Russia is using its superior force to intimidate Ukrainian troops in an attempt to get them to surrender.

Russia claims it wants to stabilize the situation on the peninsula, which has a large Russian population, but Ukraine's new government regards the move as an occupation of its sovereign territory.

For those who claim that Crimea was Russian all along, I'll teach you some history. Crimean Khanate was annexed by the Russian Empire in 1783, in 1944 there saw a genocide of Crimean Tatars done by USSR officially called "The deportation of the Crimean Tatars". So "historically" It's neither "Russian" nor "Ukraninan" territory, but still officially Russian since 1783 and officially Ukranian since 1954 (transfer of Crimea) to Ukrainian SSR or 1991 after the declaration of independence of Ukraine.

I find it funny that they removed all unit patches and flags, but they were still using equipment that is exclusive to the Russian armed forces. Kinda defeats the purpose of removing such items, no?
