San Diego's Ukrainian community is watching and waiting as Russian troops demand the surrender of the Crimea. Last Friday night, at the House of Ukraine in Balboa Park, a candlelight vigil was held to remember protestors killed in recent street fighting in Ukraine. So even though the crisis between Russia and Ukraine is half a world away geographically - it's effects are being felt deeply by many here in San Diego.
