Russian tanks have been spotted on the northern Crimea border which has sparked fears that an invasion is imminent.
Witnesses described seeing Russian military hardware and trucks arrive near the towns of Armyansk and Dzhankoy – 25 miles south of the Ukrainian border.
Meanwhile, video footage also appears to show a fleet of Russian armoured trucks driving down a street on the peninsular in a large convoy in Kerch.
Norman Dzhelalov, deputy chairman of Crimean Tatar Mejlis – which represents the ethnic Tatar group – wrote on Facebook that tanks had arrived.
