SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine- Russian troops took control of another Ukrainian naval base in Crimea late on Wednesday, a Ukrainian naval officer said.

Major Eduard Kusnarenko said there was no violence as Russian troops seized the naval transportation facility in Bakhchisaray, about 30 km (19 miles) southwest of the regional capital Simferopol."Russian troops came and asked us to leave the base, which we did," he told Reuters outside the base. "We will try again tomorrow to return to our post."



Russian troops fired a shot in the air as journalists tried to approach the gate to the base.
