Russians and Militias Seize Ukrainian Naval Headquarters

SEVASTOPOL, Crimea — Russian forces and local militiamen seized control of the headquarters of the Ukrainian Navy here on Wednesday, a day after President Vladimir V. Putin declared that Russia was annexing Crimea.
Officers of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, which is also headquartered here, entered the base through its main gates as Ukrainian military personnel streamed out carrying clothes and other personal belongings. The takeover unfolded despite calls in the West for Moscow’s expulsion from key international bodies, such as the G-8 grouping of leading economic powers.
