A majority of Ukraine's military in Crimea decided to leave the Ukraine military and become Russian citizens. They've got access to anything Ukraine left behind, probably weapons of their own, and the knowledge and training to run effective military operations in adjacent districts. It's not a stretch to imagine them organizing this without Russia's help.
One thing we haven't seen anything about is if other members of Ukraine's military have left and are fghting against the thug government in Kiev.
