Moscow: troops in Ukraine defending its citizens

GENEVA (AP) - There are fears that Moscow will send even more troops into Ukraine's Crimea region.

Pro-Russian troops are controlling a ferry terminal on the easternmost tip of Crimea, close to Russia.

The troops are refusing to identify themselves, but they're speaking Russian.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says Russian troops that have streamed into Ukraine are protecting his country's citizens living there.
