Ukraine's interior minister has accused Russian naval forces of occupying Sevastopol airport in the autonomous region of Crimea.


Arsen Avakov called their presence an "armed invasion".


But Russia's Black Sea Fleet has denied that Russian servicemen are taking part.


The other main Crimean airport, Simferopol, has also been occupied by armed men. The men are thought to be pro-Russia militia.


The Ukrainian parliament has called on the United Nations Security Council to discuss the crisis in Crimea.
