Russia Wants to Start World War III, says Ukrainian PM

World Today

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk accused Russia on Friday of wanting to start World War III by occupying Ukraine ‘militarily and politically’.

Meanwhile, the United States says it is ready to impose new sanctions against Russia. Sources say Moscow has tens of thousands of troops along its side of the border, and on Friday the acting Ukrainian Defense Minister Mikhail Koval told the Interfax-Ukraine agency that they had come within a kilometer of the border.

Pro-Russian separatists are occupying key buildings in a dozen eastern Ukrainian towns, defying the central government.” And in eastern Ukraine, government forces have relaunched an effort to root out those pro-Russian elements. That brought more harsh words from Russia’s Foreign minister Lavrov, who accused Ukraine of waging war on its own people. CCTV’S Roee Ruttenberg reports from Kiev with the ongoing war of words between Ukraine and Russia.
