SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine: Ukraine's Defense Ministry said Russian forces had partly occupied a second missile defense unit in Crimea on Wednesday, but insisted the missile depot was still under Ukrainian control.

News of the partial seizure in Cape Fiolent, near the city of Sevastopol, followed an earlier announcement that a base in Evpatoria -- further north but without missiles on its grounds -- had come under partial control by pro-Moscow forces.
