As the world continues to watch, tensions continue to flare in the Crimea region of the Ukraine as Russian military forces continue to hold a strong presence in the area.

The crisis in the area has continued to gain attention from around the world, with many people objecting to the actions of the Russian government. Many believe that the Russian government is practicing bullying tactics by delivering military force in Ukraine.

President Barack Obama has previously announced possible sanctions against the Russian government should interference from Russian president Vladimir Putin continue in Ukraine. Putin, meanwhile, has continued to insist that Russian military action in Ukraine is necessary.

The crisis in Crimea has now been going on for about a week. So far, there appears to be no end in sight to this crisis. The president of Ukraine was kicked out of office late last month by the Ukranian parliament, with the country being on the brink of civil war.

The chairman of the Ukranian parliament is currently acting as president of the country, which is now in turmoil.

It remains to be seen what will happen next in this country.
