As it can be seen from far away, the Russian flag has been hoisted on top of the Crimean parliament’s building in Simferopol.
Near the cordon are working many journalists from Russia, Ukraine and from abroad. The mood is relatively calm. However, from time to time, slogans urging to “defend the freedom and independence of Crimea” can be heard in the crowd.
Residents of Simferopol say that although all salaries and pensions are paid normally, and the delay may be only a couple of days, there is no cash in the ATMs, and they have to stand in long queues in bank offices.
