Crimea cadets to choose their nationalities

Military youth told to join the Russians or leave the region after the annexation of Crimea.

    Cadets at Sevastopol's Ukraine naval academy are to be forced to decide whether they want to join the Russians or leave Crimea.

    They face the decision following Russia's annexation of the region.

    The gate at the naval academy still bears the Ukrainian emblem, but the cadets know that this will soon change.

    Al Jazeera's Jennifer Glasse reports from Sevastopol.
