Gunmen take control of government buildings in Ukraine


(WTVR) — Unrest continues in Ukraine. Days after the country ousted the former president, Russian forces have taken over government buildings.

Dozens of gunmen have taken control of the local government buildings in Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula. The area where the incident happened has a huge Russian population and seems to be putting more tension on the east versus west divide already in effect.

This all happening as hostility grows in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev. The country has been deeply divided politically and on the verge of financial collapse.

It’s unclear right now who the gunmen are and even what they want, as no demands have been made.
