United States President Obama makes a statement regarding reports of Russian military movement within Ukraine.
“Ukraine’s new prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk says his country is refusing to respond with force to what he calls Russian “provocation” in Crimea.
“The increasing instability in Ukraine has seen Western powers including Britain and the United States call for an urgent de-escalation of tensions.
“…Earlier, Ukraine’s defence chief had accused Russia of already sending 6,000 troops and 30 armoured personnel carriers into Crimea, the restive peninsula trying to gain broader independence from new pro-EU leaders in Kiev.
“Defence minister Igor Tenyukh told the cabinet meeting that Russia began sending these reinforcements on Friday “without warning or Ukraine’s permission, in defiance of the principle of non-infringement of state borders.”
