March 4 (Bloomberg) –- Bloomberg’s Ryan Chilcote reports the latest on the crisis in Ukraine as the number of Russian troops in the region swells to 16,000. He speaks to Mark Barton on Bloomberg Television’s “Countdown.” (Source: Bloomberg)

What else is on the agenda today ? as far as the russian military is concerned, the buildup is gathering speed.

We had more troops rolling into crimea overnight.

Ukraine says russia has 16,000 troops on the peninsula.

One thing we did not see materialize, the ukrainians told us the russians were demanding two ukrainian vessel surrendered.

They had been given an ultimatum.

The ukrainians did not surrender and there was no military action.

Clearly, the buildup continues.

The united nations met in new york.

What the pressure have to say?

It was all about justification -- what did russia have to say?

It was all about justification.

The ambassador to the united nations showed everyone a letter to that effect from the ousted president.

Friday, you may remember he gave a press conference in russia where he was asked whether he was calling on president cli putin to intervene and he said no.

The russians also said they do have the right to have as many as 25,000 troops on the peninsula.

We could see that number of troops rise further.

Thank you.
