An Ukrainian soldier inspects armored vehicles on a military base in Lviv, Ukraine, 03 March 2014. Ukraine put its armed forces on 'full combat readiness' and called up reserves, as Russian military activity increased on both sides of the border. The Russian army reportedly occupied key sites in the autonomous region of Crimea, where a majority of the population is ethnic Russian. Troops surrounded several small military outposts and demanded Ukrainian troops disarm. Some refused, leading to standoffs, but no shots were fired. EPA/IVAN BOBERSKYY less
