Crimean Tatars gather at a cemetery for the funeral of Reshat Ametov outside the town of Simferopol March 18, 2014. Among the voices drowned out by victory celebrations across Crimea as it voted to leave Ukraine and join Russia were those of the Tatars, a minority group for whom the prospect of a return to Moscow rule brings only fear and uncertainty. The body of one Tatar in his 30s, named by a Crimean Tatar leader Chubarov as Reshat Ametov, was found this week after he disappeared on March 3, and Chubarov said he had died violently.

Three Russian flags were flying at one of the entrances to Ukraine's naval headquarters in the Crimean port of Sevastopol on Wednesday, suggesting that at least some of the base was under the control of pro-Russian forces. A Reuters witness saw three armed men, possibly Russian soldiers in unmarked uniforms, at the gate where the flags were flying. Also in the area were several unarmed members of so-called "self-defence" units, made up of volunteers who have supported Russia's annexation of Crimea.
