A Ukrainian serviceman was killed Tuesday at a Ukrainian base that came under attack in the Crimean capital of Simferopol, Crimea, Reuters news agency said.
The agency said this is the first death on the peninsula from a military clash since the region came under Russian control three weeks ago.
Ukraine's Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said after the incident that the conflict was moving "from a political one to a military one because of Russian soldiers," Reuters said.
