Unidentified armed men patrol in front of the Crimean Parliament in Simferopol on March 01, 2014. Pro-Russian forces tightened their grip on Crimea on Saturday as the Kremlin vowed to help restore calm on the restive Ukrainian peninsula and Washington warned of “costs” to Moscow should it order in troops. Dozens of armed men in full combat gear were patrolling the streets of Crimea’s capital of Simferopol a day after similar gunmen seized control over airports and government buildings in the Ukrainian territory where the majority of the population is Russian and where one of Moscow’s main fleets is based.
