Breaking News: UKRAINE, RUSSIA INCH CLOSER TO WAR: Russia clearly violating terms of 2010 Kharkiv Pact, Acting President Turchynov’s warning: 10 Russian military helicopters violate Ukraine airspace over Crimea; still unclear whether armed men in combat dress holding regional parliament, airports in Sevastopol and Simferopol are Russian soldiers or pro-Russia militiamen; gunmen, military trucks block roads at key points on peninsula; Kiev appeals to UN Security Council (on which Russia sits), Washington, London for help per 1994 pact signed in Budapest, maintains “Armed Forces of Russian Federation” have invaded Crimea

The airport takeovers are an ARMED INVASION and OCCUPATION by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. It is a direct provocation of armed bloodshed in the territory of a sovereign State. It is not the competence of the Ministry of internal affairs. This is the competence of the NATIONAL SECURITY and DEFENSE COUNCIL.
