- A civilian in camouflage guards Crimea from 'Nazis'
Simferopol (Ukraine) (AFP) - Standing watch in front of Crimea's regional parliament in the capital Simferopol, Konstantin Chaika, a pro-Russian civilian in camouflage gear insists he is a "peaceful man." But he says he will know "where to look" to find weapons if the situation escalates on the tense Black Sea peninsula, where Russian forces have seized control over the past week and surrounded Ukrainian bases. Since Ukraine's pro-Moscow president Viktor Yanukovych was ousted on February 22, this 35-year-old researcher has spent hours standing guard in front of the Stalin-era assembly building, between Cossacks in typical Astrakhan fur hats and angry babushkas -- elderly local women -- waiting for a hypothetical invasion by "Nazis from Kiev." By that, Chaika means the mostly nationalist opposition that toppled Yanukovych from power and led to the instalment of a pro-European Ukrainian government.
