Moscow declared strategic peninsula as a Russian region, but Ukrainian troops refuse to leave their bases.

    Russian forces have seized control of a number of naval installations in the port city of Sevastopol and the Crimean capital of Simferopol.

    But many members of Ukraine's armed forces have refused to give up their posts.
