Ukraine's Foreign Ministry has demanded urgent consultations with Russia on the situation in the Crimean autonomous region. Due to the absence of the Russian ambassador in Ukraine, who has been recalled to Moscow for consultations, Russia's temporary charge d'affaires was handed a note demanding that the military contingent of the Russian military bases in Crimea refrain from leaving the bases.
I am not sure anybody in Russia would consider talking to them...They will need to send some (poor) Europeans to talk (Americans are too proud). Maybe Ashton...she is so good with diplomacy...and she deserve it ...
