Dozens of Russian Tanks Enter Ukraine


Dozens of tanks and other military vehicles crossed the border into Ukraine from Russia, the government in Kiev said, as tensions between the former Soviet republics threatened to escalate into open war.

Military vehicles poured into Ukraine in multiple places and Ukraine's army is preparing "for an adequate reaction," military spokesman Andriy Lysenko told reporters in Kiev today. He said pro-Russian militants were shelling government troops in the conflict zone with grad missile systems, mortars and artillery, killing five servicemen and wounding 16.
