"I'm not the kind of officer who could take an oath twice," the Ukrainian navy's commanding officer told the CBC crew. Such bravery from a Ukrainian sailor stuck at harbor, hopelessly surrounded by Russian troops and snipers!
All this gives the lie to Russia's claim that these are Crimean "local self-defense forces." No, these are trained and equipped Russian troops with a mission to occupy and overtake Crimea and all its Ukrainian military bases.
My friend is safe now, thank goodness. Glory to Ukraine!
