Declaring that Russian troops had crossed into Ukraine, President Petro O. Poroshenko on Thursday canceled a planned visit to Turkey and convened a meeting of the national security council to focus on the “marked aggravation of the situation” in the southeast of his country.
The meeting of the national security council will focus on shaping a response, and Ukraine will also request a meeting of the United Nations Security Council.
Mr. Poroshenko made his comments as the leader of the main separatist group in southeastern Ukraine said that up to 4,000 Russians, including active-duty soldiers on leave, had been fighting against Ukrainian government forces and NATO released images that show Russian artillery units and about 1,000 soldiers operating in Ukraine.
Weird to be here dealing with the liberation of France in 1944 and the start of World War I in 1914 and now to see this.
Of course, to have one it is necessary to want one. On this, I do sincerely have my doubts.
