Armed forces including armoured vehicles have broken inside a Ukrainian airbase in Crimea, firing from automatic weapons into the air, an AFP correspondent saw.
An armoured vehicle rammed through the gate of the base, and an ambulance was also seen approaching with sirens blaring, as armed men went inside and pointed guns at Ukrainian soldiers.
