Last month, a naval incident saw Russia shoot openly at Ukrainian military personnel for the first time and seize 24 Ukrainian sailors. Ukraine, in response, has declared martial law in ten regions, made good on promises to create an independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church, and ended a treaty of friendship with Russia that was still in force. Little noticed by the world, war rumbles on in the eastern Donbas region, occupied by Russian-backed forces. FRANCE 24's Gulliver Cragg reports.

Ukraine crisis: Crimea's new Russian-made In Ukraine's Donbas region, war rumbles 1 day ago   01:49

The Telegraph's Moscow correspondent, Roland Oliphant, reports from Crimea, where he says an ever increasing Russian military presence is turning the region into a "de facto different country".

"If you're in any doubt that you're entering what is becoming a de facto different country, just look at the sign.

"Stop Maidan, Crimea is for stability, no foreign interference. That's a message ... that the revolutionaries who overthrew Viktor Yanukovytch in the capital are not welcome here."

Ukrainian officials have confirmed that Russia is building up armour on its side of a narrow stretch of water closest to Crimea after President Putin declared at the weekend he had the right to invade to protect Russian interests and citizens in Ukraine.
