Perevalnoye, Ukraine March 04 2014
Some heavily armed soldiers without insignia had taken up positions around small Ukrainian military bases, but did not try to enter them.
At Perevalnoye, a small Ukrainian base some 15 miles south of Simferopol on the road to Yalta, hundreds of soldiers with masks, helmets and goggles, in unmarked uniforms, surrounded the base, using vehicles with Russian plates. Inside about two dozen Ukrainian soldiers could be seen, equipped with an old BMP, a combination of a light tank and armored personnel carrier.
