NOVOOZERNE, Ukraine (AFP) - Russian forces seized control of a second Ukrainian navy base in western Crimea on Wednesday, Agence France-Presse reporters saw, hours after capturing the main navy headquarters in Sevastopol.

Some 50 Ukrainian servicemen were seen filing out of the base at Novoozerne as Russian soldiers stood by, while pro-Moscow militants raised the Russian flag over the base.
