The final Ukrainian military unit on the Crimean territory that has 49 MiG-29 aircraft in service, was captured by Russian forces yesterday. The base in Belbek had been holding its territory, having no support from the new Ukrainian authorities. Its
military personnel, whose weapons were locked in the arsenal, were armed with clubs and one anti-aircraft machine gun. Following the fruitless negotiations, the gates of the unit were simply destroyed by the Russian armored troop-carrier.
