INVASION: Russia Invading Ukraine, According to Acting President.

Russian troops have invaded Ukrainian Crimea, according to charges made by acting Ukraine President Oleksandr Turchynov. What many already suspected as true has reportedly been affirmed by Ukrainian officials and the presence of Russian troops and warplanes landing in Crimea.

As Ukrainian Pravda reports (translated into English):

Russian airplanes are landing in Crimea from the direction of Russia, and a column of APCs is heading from the east toward Simferopol.

There are reports of at least 5 large IL-76 planes landing in the district of the military airfield in the town of Gvardeyskoye.

Various sources are reporting that a column of 10 Russian APCs is heading from Sevastopol toward Simfereopol.

Interfax Ukraine reports that all air traffic is halted at the Belbek Airport in Sevastopol due to the seizure of the landing strip by unknown persons.

“There are about 400 people now in the Belbek airport. They have occpuied the landing strip and any movement of planes is stopped,” said a source.
