Concerns over Crimea's future rise in Ukraine

Russia's Black Sea fleet is on the move in Ukraine. Soldiers are protecting Russian properties in Crimea, where the fleet is based. Fleet officials also fear reprisals against the 60,000 Russian-speaking Ukrainians and Russian nationals living in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Some residents there are signing up for self-defense groups. The fear of reprisals stems from the geopolitical nature of the country. People in the Russian-speaking east tend to sympathize with Moscow, which supported the recently ousted president Viktor Yanukovich. The Ukrainian-speaking west favors greater independence from Russia. Ukraine's parliament has already raised concerns about "signs of separatism." A national security council meeting was held Tuesday to address the concerns.
