UPDATE: Russia's Putin Submits Plans For Armed Intervention In Ukraine

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Ukraine accused Russia of sending 6,000 additional troops into Crimea Saturday, deepening a crisis in which both sides accused each other of trying to destabilize the region.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk urged Moscow to cease what it called provocative actions, echoing a warning by President Barack Obama who said any military intervention following the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovich would have costs for Moscow.

Armed men wearing combat uniform with no identification markings control two airports in Crimea, which hosts Russia's Black Sea Fleet, and have taken over the regional parliament in what Kiev described as an occupation by Moscow's forces.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is warning Russia there will be costs if Russia intervenes militarily in Ukraine.
   
Obama says the U.S. is deeply concerned by reports of military movements by Russia inside Ukraine.
   
He says any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be destabilizing. He says it would violate Russia's commitment to respect Ukraine's borders and would invite global condemnation.
   
Obama says the U.S. stands with the world community to affirm there will be costs for an intervention.
   
Obama spoke at the White House late Friday.
