Posted on 03/03/2014 6:41:36 AM PST by mykroar
Russia has said China is largely "in agreement" over Ukraine, after other world powers condemned Moscow for sending troops into the country.
Hundreds of Russian soldiers have surrounded a military base in Crimea, preventing Ukrainian soldiers from going in or out.
The convoy blockading the site, near the Crimean capital Simferopol, includes at least 17 military vehicles.
Russian troops are also reported to have taken control of a ferry terminal in the city of Kerch on the eastern tip of Crimea, which has a majority Russian-speaking population.
Ukraine's defence ministry said two Russian fighter jets violated the country's air space in the Black Sea on Sunday night and that it had scrambled an interceptor aircraft to prevent the "provocative actions".
And reports claimed pro-Russian protesters had occupied a floor of the regional government building in Donetsk. The 11-storey building has been flying the Russian flag for the last three days.
Ukrainian prime minister Arseny Yatseniuk has insisted his country "will never give up Crimea to anyone" and urged Russian forces to withdraw.

Have not heard many reports on what the Ukraine military is doing during all this.
So the Ruskies cannot complain when China moves into Siberia because Han Chinese outnumber Russians in the area and parts of Siberia were under historical Chinese Imperial control.
Or the Russians will have China’s diplomatic back when their navy moves west.
Just wait until China tried to grab a chunk of eastern Russia! “Russia Fears China’s Growing Influence in Siberia and the Far East”
“...These strong comments confirm suspicions that the Kremlin fears that the steady influx of Chinese migrants to into the sparsely populated region of Siberia and the Far East could prove a threat to Russias control in the area.
The Russian government now includes a Ministry of the Far East who run certain programs that are designed to reinforce the Russian speaking population, and has already relocated 400 families from other parts of the former Soviet Union...”
I called it.
Watch China seize the Senkaku Islands.
Canada has a majority English speaking population. Should US troops "take control" of the Toronto ferry terminal?
