KYIV, February 27 /Ukrinform/. Special forces of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) will conduct a special operation to prevent the entry into Simferopol of armored personnel carriers, presumably belonging to Russian troops, Ukrinform has learnt from the press office of the Security Service Department in Crimea.
“The special operation will be conducted in the area of the village Ukromne, Simferopol district,” the report reads.
According to unofficial reports, seven armored personnel carriers with Russian identifying signs have been seen in the area of the village of Ukromne. Presumably, they are moving to Simferopol to support armed men who on Thursday have seized the building of the Verkhovna Rada and the Council of Ministers of Crimea and raised over them the flags of the Russian Federation.
If Russia uses a heavy hand, they may win Crimea, but lose Belarus. I suspect Russia will only keep Sevastopol.
