A Russian soldier has shot dead a Ukrainian naval officer in eastern Crimea, Ukraine's Defense Ministry said on Monday, in one of few fatalities reported since Russia took control of the Black Sea peninsula.

The ministry gave few details of the death late on Sunday in the town of Novofyodorovka. Russian forces took over Crimea in an almost bloodless operation before Moscow annexed the region last month.
