SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine — Ukraine accused Russia of a “military invasion and occupation” today, saying Russian troops have taken up positions around a coast guard base and two airports on its strategic Crimea peninsula. Russia kept silent on the accusations, as the crisis deepened between two of Europe’s largest countries.

Any Russian military incursion in Crimea would dramatically raise the stakes in Ukraine’s conflict, which saw pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych flee last weekend after three months of anti-government protests. Yanukovych vowed today at a news conference in Russia to “keep fighting for the future of Ukraine,” though he called any military action “unacceptable.”
