Stop this hysteria! Putin didn't bring the army into Crimea.It was done by A.V.Suvorov back in 1778 and the army hasn't left it ever since!

On February 28th, 2014 armed men with no identifying markings, initially called polite armed men in green or polite people, but later identified as Russian GRU Spetsnaz forces left Russian military bases on Crimea in unmarked military vehicles and briefly secured a small number of strategic locations on Crimea, including the Parliament Building and and the Simerfopol International Airport. Western mainstream media however reported the evens as a full scale military invasion and occupation of Crimea, with armored columns entering from Russia and occupying every part of the peninsula. The Wikipedia article on these events, which bases itself on what it calls "reliable sources", i.e mainstream media, repeats these claims. This page looks at the evidence for these allegations.

The Russian foreign ministry said Friday that it had informed the Ukrainian government that armoured units from the Black Sea Fleet base near Sevastopol had entered Crimea in order to protect fleet positions.
“The Ukrainian side was also passed a note regarding the movement of armoured vehicles of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea, which is happening in full accordance with the foundation Russian-Ukrainian agreement on the Black Sea Fleet,” the ministry said in a statement posted on its website on Friday afternoon.
