Ukraine's interim prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Tuesday night has ordered its troops in Crimea to use their weapons to protect themselves after a soldier was killed when pro-Russian forces stormed a military base near Simferopol, according to news reports.
The shooting came hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin and Crimean leaders signed a treaty that makes the Black Sea peninsula part of the Russian Federation. Putin announce the annexation of Crimea on Tuesday, the reports added.
Yatsenyuk called this move "a robbery on an international scale," one that Kiev will never accept. However, according to the White House and European leaders the treaty is an illegal annexation. Residents of Crimea voted Sunday to separate from Ukraine, the reports further said.
Hundreds of Ukrainian troops and administrative staff remained trapped inside military and naval compounds across Crimea. Until now they had been ordered to avoid using their weapons.
