A Ukrainian soldier has been killed during the storming by Russian troops and members of the "Crimean self-defense" of the photogrammetric center of the central military topographic and navigation department of the Main Administration of Operational Provision of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Simferopol.
The head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense's Crimean media center, Vladyslav Selezniov, wrote on his Facebook page.
"One person was killed during the storming of the [center]. This Ukrainian soldier was serving on the territory of the unit's park," he said.
He also said another wounded person, a captain, was sent to the emergency hospital of Simferopol.
The invaders told Ukrainian officers that they were arrested and took away their papers.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, unidentified gunmen presumed to be members of the Russian military and the "Crimean self-defense" stormed the military base at about 15:00.
