The death was the first military casualty since Russian troops invaded Crimea on Feb. 27, effectively seizing the entire peninsula.

“The serviceman has been killed during an assault by Russian military on the photogrammetric information center of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Simferopol,” Vladyslav Selezniov, head of communications for Ukraine’s defense ministry in Crimea, wrote on his Facebook page. Interfax and Reuters also reported and verified the incident.

One self-defense fighter was also killed and at least two people injured as a result of the shooting near Kubanska Street in Simferopol, according to the newly created Crimean news agency Kriminform, citing a source within the Crimean Interior Ministry.
