Despite the statements, Russian President Putin, that there are no Russian troops on the streets in the Crimea, but the weapons and military equipment available to these "forces" often have a very distinct nationality.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a March 4 press conference: "These were local self-defense forces. We did not take part in their preparation. " However, weapons and military equipment at the disposal of these "forces" often have a very distinct nationality. This is written by the Russian edition of The New Times, which asked experts to analyze photographs from the Crimea.

UPD: 04/03/2014 Liya Akhedzhakova about Ukraine: "They are afraid of us!"
A well-known Russian actress, known for her bold statements against the Russian policy of intimidation and oppression, commented on the latest developments.
How we planted ourselves, our elder brother, our tanks - and how far they escaped from us as soon as the opportunity arose. Drapanuli all. As now, the Maidan wants to get rid of us, and God forbid we will step on these rakes again. Although there are no closer people than Ukraine and Russia, they are afraid of us. They remember the Holodomor and the Stalin camps. And most importantly, I read one sentence from Dovlatov: Stalin - yes, the scum was terrible, but who wrote four million denunciations? That's what bothers me most. Who are these people who are tortured in jail? Who are these snipers who target the eye and the heart? And who voted for the "golden toilet", for thieves and crooks? And for whom they will vote again? .. We are rapidly slipping into the past. And now, when there is an experience of the Maidan, power, of course, is frightened. It will further tighten the nuts.

UPD: 04/03/2014 Vladimir Putin: Necessity of entering troops to Ukraine yet
On March 4, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Russian and foreign journalists to present his position on the events in Ukraine.
The conversation took place at the presidential residence in Novo-Ogaryov. Several dozens of media representatives took part in it. In the opinion of Vladimir Putin, what happened in Kiev can only be assessed as "an unconstitutional coup and an armed seizure of power."
Despite the fact that Viktor Yanukovych has no power, at the moment he is the only legally legitimate president, Putin told journalists. Only the parliament of Ukraine has partial legitimacy today, the rest of the authorities are not, the Russian president stressed.
"We can not say about the legitimacy of the acting president," Russian President Vladimir Putin told journalists. - There is legally only one legitimate president, it is clear that he has no power, it is understandable. But, I already talked about this and I want to repeat that this legitimate president is purely legal, of course, only Yanukovich. "
According to Vladimir Putin, Viktor Yanukovych "almost surrendered his power" by signing an agreement with the opposition on February 21, 2014. But "he did not give any illegal orders," the Russian leader said.
"The fact that we took part in destiny (Yanukovych - RT), we did it also exclusively for humanitarian reasons ... I think that it would have been simply killed there"
The Russian leader told the media that he understands the people of Ukraine who wanted radical changes, not the repair of the facade of the authorities, but stressed that one should not encourage unconstitutional actions.
"I understand those people on the Maidan, although I do not welcome the fact of a change of power in this way, but I understand those people who still do not require any repairs to the facades of power, but require drastic changes. They have become accustomed to the fact that some crooks are changed to other crooks and rascals "
"Enrichment and stratification of society - we have enough of these problems and they are very acute in our country, and in Ukraine it is even more acute, even worse, erected in a cube and in a square"
During the conversation with journalists, Vladimir Putin said that Russian troops in Ukraine can only be used in the most extreme case. He recalled that "Russia has a direct appeal of the legitimate president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych on the use of armed forces to protect the life, liberty and health of Ukrainian citizens."
"While there is no such need," Putin said. "But there is such an opportunity."
At the same time, the head of state said that the recent military exercises by Russia "have nothing to do with the events in Ukraine." The option of joining the Crimea to Russia is also not being considered, Vladimir Putin stressed.
The head of state told journalists that 22 thousand Ukrainian servicemen and several dozens of S-300 units passed under the control of the Crimean authorities without a single shot.
As for holding the G8 summit in Sochi this year, Vladimir Putin stressed that the preparatory work is proceeding according to plan.
"We are preparing for the G8, we will be ready to receive our colleagues, but if they do not want to come, do not."
As for the possible introduction of sanctions against Russia, Vladimir Putin warned that the consequences of such a step should be thought by those who are going to introduce these sanctions.
"I think that in the modern world, when everything is interconnected and everything depends on one another, of course, it is possible to cause some damage to each other, but this will be mutual damage. And they should also think about this "
Speaking of a discount on Russian gas, Putin said that it could be canceled if Ukraine does not repay its debts in full. In the event that the February supplies are not paid, the debt will be almost $ 2 billion.
Asked whether Viktor Yanukovich is alive now, the Russian president told the crowd that he had seen him two days ago, he was "alive and well".
"But he will catch a cold at the funeral of those who dissolve such information"
At the end of the meeting, Vladimir Putin stressed that Russia will closely monitor the observance of the rights of citizens throughout Ukraine.
"Our position must be conveyed to all citizens of Ukraine, we have no enemies there, this is a friendly state"
