Ukraine accuses Russia of 'armed invasion' after Crimea airports blockaded

Ukranian minister accuses Russia of an armed takeover of Crimea amid reports that airports have been seized 

Ukraine accused Russia of staging an "armed invasion" of Crimea on Friday as the ex-Soviet state's ousted leader prepared to emerge defiant from five days of hiding after winning protection from Moscow.
Unidentified armed men were patrolling outside of Crimea's main airport early Friday while gunmen were also reported to have seized another airfield on the southwest of the peninsula where ethnic Russians are a majority and where pro-Moscow sentiment runs high.
