Ukraine planning military withdrawal from Crimea peninsula
Wed, 19 Mar 2014 18:30:22 GMT - Kiev UKRAINE 
(Orginal Source BBC) - Ukraine is preparing plans to withdraw troops and their families from Crimea, Ukraine’s security chief stated.

The plans come a day after Crimean leaders signed a treaty with Moscow becoming part of the Russian Federation. On Sunday the Crimea region overwhelmingly voted to secede from Kiev and rejoin Russia.

"We are developing a plan that would enable us not only to withdraw servicemen, but also members of their families in Crimea, so that they could be quickly and efficiently moved to mainland Ukraine," Ukraine Security chief Andriy Parubiy said.

Paruiby added that Ukraine is seeking UN approval to declare Crimea a demilitarized zone in order to relocate “Ukrainian troops to continental Ukraine as well as facilitate evacuation of all the civilian population who are unwilling to remain on the occupied territory".

Earlier in the day, pro-Russian forces seized two Ukraine naval bases.

Ukraine announced that it would be leaving the Commonwealth of Independent States - a Moscow-led coalition.
