Russia’s Federation Council has unanimously approved sending Russian troops to Ukraine

The development follows an appeal by the Prime Minister of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, who requested help from Russia to “cope with the crisis and ensure peace and calm in the region,” said reports.

Events in Ukraine indicate there is a “threat to the lives of citizens of the Russian Federation… and the personnel of the armed forces of the Russian Federation on Ukrainian territory,” said the Russian president Putin.

“We are particularly concerned with the situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, where, in accordance with the international treaty, the Black Sea Fleet is stationed; where 1.5 million Russian people live,”said a presidential spokesman.

Putin has not yet decided weather to use  military force in Ukraine despite the unanimous approval by the senate, said a presidential spokesman.

About 6,000 additional Russian troops and 30 armored vehicles have been sent to Crimea, said the Ukrainian Defense Minister on Saturday.

“Russian soldiers are widely reported to be guarding a number of administrative buildings and military bases in Crimea. Parliament, airports, the state television building and telecommunications hubs have also been surrounded,” said a report.
