SIMFEROPOL, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Not a single shot has been made during the transition of Ukrainian army servicemen over to the side of the Crimean government, an official governmental source told Itar-Tass here Sunday.
“Their transition has been exceptionally peaceful, with no shots or any other signs of violence on either side,” he said.
The source believes that some of the former Ukrainian army men and officers may take a new oath of allegiance before the end of the day.
Also, well-connected sources in the Crimea said that about ten ships of the Ukrainian Navy had left their base in Sevastopol since Saturday afternoon.
