Rundt 60 russiske soldater har krysset inn i Øst-Ukraina. Om det er en fotropp er vanskelig å si, men i den spente situasjonen er en slik liten styrke nok til å utløse en kjedereaksjon.
Overshadowing the events of the day were reports from the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine that about 60 Russian troops in six helicopters assisted by three armed vehicles crossed into Ukraine’s Kherson region, which borders Crimea.
The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine said the Russian troops were on the ground and the Ukrainian guards had taken defensive positions.
Power, speaking to press after the session, said that if Russian troops had crossed further into Ukraine it would be an «outrageous escalation.»
