SIMFEROPOL, UKRAINE - MARCH 01:  Heavily-armed soldiers displaying no identifying insignia maintain watch in a street in the city center on March 1, 2014 in Simferopol, Ukraine. Similarly dressed soldiers stationed themselves around the Crimean Parliament building earlier in the day in what seems to be a growing military occupation of the city, which is the Crimean capital. The day before unidentified soldiers occupied Simferopol International Airport and Russian soldiers occupied the airport at nearby Sevastapol in moves that are raising tensions between Russia and the new Kiev government. Crimea has a majority Russian population and armed, pro-Russian groups have occupied government buildings in Simferopol.  (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
