Russian troops 'overrun Crimea's Feodosia naval base' 12 minutes ago

Russian troops have seized control of a Crimean naval base at Feodosia, the third such attack in 48 hours, Ukrainian officials have told the BBC.

Defence spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov said the Russians attacked the base from two directions using automatic weapons and stun grenades.

He said they rounded up the Ukrainians and tied the hands of their officers.

Russia has taken over most of Ukraine's military bases in Crimea, tightening its grip on the peninsula.
