An armed pro-Russian group is in control of a military airport in Crimea.

A Ukrainian defense-ministry spokesman says the group was supporting 50 civilians. 

The group blocked the entrance of the airport and set up machine-gun posts along a landing strip. The civilians tried to break into the airport's control terminal.

Russian forces are controlling strategic points in Crimea including Belbek military airport and the main civilian airport.
