Armed men stop U.N. chief's representative in Crimea: Ukrainian ministry

Kiev - Armed men stopped a special representative of U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Ukraine's Crimea region on Wednesday, Ukraine's foreign ministry said.

U.N. Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson said Robert Serry had been threatened but had not been kidnapped.

Serry phoned up Ukraine's deputy foreign minister and described the incident as it was unfolding, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Press Secretary Yevhen Perebiynis said.

"He said that as he left the headquarters of the navy in Simferopol, his vehicle was blocked by unknown men in uniform with weapons, who said they had an order to take him to the airport. He refused, and they are still holding him."

Crimea is under the control of Russian military forces, although Moscow describes its troops there who wear no insignia on their uniforms as "self-defense" units of the local administration.

Doesn't sound like he's safe in his hotel room to me.

17:03: Some 40 assailants "dressed like bikers" seized Col Gen Mikhail Koval at about 16:00 local time near the gates of the Coast Guard naval base. They pushed away the officers surrounding the general and shoved him into a jeep, the border guard's press service said. They believe Col Gen Koval was taken to Sevastopol, and was trying to negotiate with the kidnappers, the BBC understands.

I have to admit the conduct of the Russian troops has been outstanding. They have really pulled themselves together and the USA and allies has a thing or two to learn.

Not saying by the way what Putin's done is right but the Russian troops (who are just following orders) haven't themselves been out of line.

If the US and its allies (including the UK) had gone in Im sure bombs and bullets would have been exchanged by now.

Outside coffee shop are men in combat fatigues blocking the door. Some wear pro Russia black and gold arm band. Not allowing anyone in/out

UN special envoy Robert Serry's assistant says she saw at least one man with a gun among group who blocked his car. #Ukraine

James Mates ‏@jamesmatesitv 14m
He refused to go with men blocking car, got out and walked until he found coffee shop. He's asked ITV News team to stay with him. #Ukraine

I think he needs to get to a safer place because he could be a danger. Out of Crimea I suppose?

BBC reporters marched off at gunpoint?

Western media being biased here me thinks!


Reporters seem to be getting cocky and walking round no mans land. Just because no shots have been fired dosnt mean its not a battlefield!

And they have the nerve to complain when Russia troops pick them up and escort them off the area? Really? To me the Russian troops did the right thing! If something had happened and it had turned into a hot zone the reporters could very well have ended up caught in the crossfire and killed
I think the Russians did a very responsible thing there.

BBC QUOTE - Olga Ivshina, a BBC Russian Service reporter :

"Snickers?" asks a soldier. "You shouldn't eat that American food. Bad for your health."

"You can have it if you want," I say.

"No, no. We don't eat American food," says the soldier with the grenade-launcher, smiling contentedly.

We carry on emptying the rucksack - and reach the first aid kit.

"American kit!" says the man with the grenade-launcher. Instantly the soldiers raise their rifles again.

"Judging by your physique, you are both British spies!" says another soldier rapidly.

"Is that a compliment or a rebuke?" I ask. Tense silence.

What is this crap....a 1950's cold war spy novel were everybody wears trenchcoats and trilbys...

Agreed.

Now Al Jazeera is reporting he was *forced* into a car.

Unless that's exactly what he was sent there to achieve, in which case for one side it was a massive success.

I know
anyone would think they were interrogated and tortured for hours on end


They should have thanked the Russian troops as the reporters may have got saved from a Darwin award.

From all the reports coming in... it seems that things are starting to unravel pretty quickly. I have a feeling a knee jerk reaction is going to happen soon.
