Russia has tightened its military grip on Ukraine's Crimea region, taking de facto control despite Western demands that it withdraw.

Thousands of Russian troops are securing the region. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said they were defending Russian citizens and human rights.

The world's seven major industrialised powers have condemned Moscow's "violation of Ukraine's sovereignty".

Ukraine has ordered full mobilisation, urging more international support.
