WW4 File: UKRAINE, RUSSIA AT WAR: Russian military wraps up massive exercise, pulls back to bases after reportedly massing near N., E. Ukraine, test-fires ICBM near Caspian Sea to make point; deadline for Ukrainian forces to surrender in Crimea passes without threatened Russian assault; Putin finally addresses crisis: denies Russian troops in Crimea, only “self-defense teams”; no plans to annex Ukraine’s autonomous region; insinuates Kiev’s leaders are “neo-Nazis, Nazis and anti-Semites,” orchestrated “unconstitutional coup,” “armed seizure of power”; admits Yanukovich “legitimate president” but “no political future,” Moscow received request to “protect welfare of local population,” but no immediate need for military intervention in Ukraine
