Moskva har stilt ultimatum til de ukrainske soldatene på Krim; De må overgi sine våpne og forlate basene innen klokken 05 mandag morgen.

Crisis in Ukraine

Det er en aggressiv handling av en fremmed makt å kreve at landets soldater overgir seg.

The Russian military set an ultimatum Sunday for Ukrainian army and navy units “to surrender weapons and leave their bases” in the Crimean peninsula, Ukraine’s acting president, Olexandr Turchinov, said in televised remarks.

According to Turchinov, the ultimatum demanded that the troops abandon their bases by 5 a.m. Sunday. But as of late afternoon, the Ukrainian military was still occupying the bases, although they were kept effectively confined to them by Russian troops blocking access.

Turchinev said the ultimatum came from the Russian military’s North Caucacus division. He said his efforts to speak about it with leaders in Moscow had been futile.

“Unfortunately, I couldn’t get through to President [Vladimir] Putin, Premier [Dmitry] Medvedev or State Duma Chairman [Sergei] Naryshkin,” Turchinov said.

Russland spiller et høyt spill. De har overmakten, men heller ikke Moskva kan vite hvordan eventyret slutter. De har satt i gang noe ingen vet utgangen på.

Den ukrainske s

..acting Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk called the Russian troop movements and call to arms of Crimea’s predominantly ethnic Russian population “a declaration of war.”
