In recent days, pro-Russian forces have stormed Ukrainian military bases across Crimea, including in two separate incidents on Saturday.
Evgeny Feldman, a staff photographer for the Russian publication Novaya Gazeta and a frequent contributor to Mashable, documented the Russian takeover of one Ukrainian military base in Perevalnoye, a small town outside the Crimean capital of Simferopol, in a series of photos taken on Friday.
Feldman said the military base is one of the biggest in Crimea, and sits next to a settlement where soldiers and their relatives lived “for generations.” While some are leaving, others have decided to join the Russian army, he added.
