Russian troops now control a Ukrainian Air Base in Crimea.

The base commander said he's being detained by the Russians for talks at an undisclosed location. He also said one of his soldiers was injured when Russian armored vehicles crashed through the gates today at Belbek Air Base.

Earlier, troops surrounding the base had given the Ukrainians one hour to surrender.

Belbek was one of the last military bases still under Ukrainian control following Russia's takeover of the Crimean peninsula.
