Ukraine under threat of ‘full-scale war’ with Russia: Poroshenko
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says Russia has sharply increased its military presence on the border with his country, warning that the deployment entails the threat of “full-scale war.”
“The number of (Russian) tanks at bases located along our border has tripled,” Poroshenko said in a televised interview with Ukrainian television networks on Tuesday.
He added that “the number of units that have been deployed along our border — what’s more, along its full length — has grown dramatically.”
Poroshenko highlighted that the military buildup meant that Ukraine is “under threat of full-scale war with Russia.”
