"I would like to remind you of the history: World War 2 started with the annexation of the territory of other countries by fascist Germany. Today the president of Russia, Mr Putin, who likes to talk about fascism a lot, is copying the fascists of the last century."

7. SOUNDBITE (Ukrainian) Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Ukraine's prime minister:
"It is an international theft when under the cover of troops and weapons one country, using force and thinking that they will never have answer for their actions, just temporarily steal a part of an independent state."
Ukraine's new government called Russian president Vladimir Putin a threat to the whole world after he added Crimea to the map of Russia on Tuesday.
Ukraine's interim president Oleksandr Turchynov compared Putin to 20th Century fascists.
Prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk then said that Russian soldiers are turning a political conflict into a military one.
In an emotional 40-minute speech televised live from the Kremlin, Putin said Crimea has always been an integral part of Russia.
He dismissed Western criticism of Sunday's Crimean referendum, in which residents of the strategic Black Sea peninsula overwhelmingly backed breaking off from Ukraine and joining Russia, as a manifestation of the West's double standards.
But the Russian leader has insisted his nation has no intention to invade other regions of Ukraine.
