Ukraine’s government is drawing up plans to withdraw its troops from Crimea where Russia is steadily taking control as its armed forces seize military installations across the peninsula. Ukraine says it will seek UN support to turn Crimea into a demilitarized zone as it seeks to relocate armed forces to the mainland. Ukraine’s military, which is heavily outnumbered in Crimea has come under increased pressure since the region was nominally incorporated into Russia on Tuesday. Earlier today, masked Russian-speaking troops seized control over Ukraine’s naval headquarters in Sevastopol. A Ukrainian navy commander was also detained during that operation.
