  •  Ok, not sure about Simferopol airport. (0+ / 0-)

    Maybe Russian troops there, maybe not. Sevastopol one though is definitely occupied by Russian troops.

    •  The Russians have a legal right to protect their (0+ / 0-)

      naval base in Sevastopol as per a Ukrainian-Russian agreement.

      The US has the same thing for their bases on foreign soil.

      Simferopol airport is owned by Yanukovych's son, Oleksandr. There are private security guards inside the terminal. BTW, the "troops" on the outside don't have Russian or Ukranian camo uniforms.
