“Swear allegiance to the new Crimean authorities, or surrender, or face an attack,”

That was the Commander of the Russian Black Sea Naval Fleet, Aleksandr Vitko, (according to Vladislav Seleznev, a Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman in Crimea) to the Ukrainian Warships in Crimea’s Sevastopol Harbor who have been blocked by Russian Warships since the Russian’s armed invasion of Crimea although spokesman for the Russian Black Sea Fleet said there are no plans to storm Ukrainian military units in Crimea, according to the Interfax news agency.

The Swedish Foreign Minister told reporters on Monday after leaving an Emergency European Union meeting that the EU has agreed that Russia’s actions are an “aggression.” Bildt also said that Russia must de-escalate, withdraw its forces and engage in dialogue. If that doesn’t happen fairly quickly, he added, that would ‘take down’ EU-Russian relations.
