People attend a rally against Russia on Kiev's Independence square on March 2, 2014. Ukraine said Sunday it would call up all military reservists after President Vladimir Putin's threat to invade Russia's neighbour drew a blunt response from US President Barack Obama. The stark escalation in what threatens to become the worst crisis in relations since the Cold War came as pro-Russian forces seized control of key government buildings and airports in the strategic Crimean peninsula.

Editor's Note: The EuroMaidan Revolution entered its 102 day on March 2 with Russia in control of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula after an invasion that began on Feb. 28. In the meantime, Viktor Yanukovych, ousted as Ukrainian president on Feb. 22, remains in exile in Russia as Russian President Vladimir Putin asserts the right to intervene militarily in Ukraine and stay indefinitely.
