About 300 women gathered at the military unit in Bakchisaray that was stormed by Russian militants.

Peaceful rally started at 12:00 local time, number of activists increases constantly, among them teachers, doctors, housewives with children.

Women are chanting “We are against war”, “Crimea is not Russia”, “Glory to Ukrainian soldiers”.

Now, blocking the main road, the column of activists is making way to city center.

To recall, most of Crimean military units were seized by Russian militants, who demand Crimean soldiers to surrender.

Crimean soldiers, in turn, remain loyal to military oath given to Ukrainian people and are not going to give up.
