SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine's State Border Guard Service says about 30 Russian marines had taken positions outside its Coast Guard base in the Sevastopol.

The agency on Friday quoted the marines from the 810th brigade of Russia's Black Sea Fleet as saying they were there to prevent any weapons at the base from being seized by extremists.
