Gazeta.ru and another Russian news outlet, Novyi Region, are reporting (in Russian) that Ukraine's Interior Ministry's troops have been dispatched to Koktebel region of Crimea, where a group of Crimean Tatars allegedly seized land in an area that had recently been declared natural preserve by Crimea's parliament.

Both Russian sources emphasize that the Crimean Tatars' "unlawful actions" have "displeased" the peninsula's "Slavic population."

I haven't yet seen reports on the troops movement in any other, non-Russian, media, although the Crimean Kafa News did write briefly (in Russian) on the brewing conflict last month.

The situation doesn't look good at all, with or without the Interior Ministry's troops.
