US Secretary of State John Kerry gestures during a press conference held at the US Embassy in Kiev on March 4, 2014. Kerry accused Russia on March 4 of looking for a 'pretext' to invade Ukraine after taking de-facto control of the ex-Soviet state's strategic Crimea peninsula. Russian forces have surrounded Ukrainian military bases across Crimea as the Russian-speaking autonomous region has been thrown into turmoil following the ouster last month of Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovych. Ukrainian officials said on March 3 that Russia had given Ukrainian soldiers in Crimea an ultimatum to surrender or face an all-out assault, although Russia denounced the claim as 'complete nonsense'.
