Polish PM warns threat of Russia's intervention in Ukraine has risen

|By:, SA News Editor

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk says he has reasons to suspect that the threat of a direct intervention by Russia's military in Ukraine has increased over the last few days.

NATO’s deputy secretary general says that Russia has amassed about 20,000 troops along its border with eastern Ukraine, and follows a Pentagon spokesman's announcement yesterday that said Russian forces are closer than when it annexed Crimea in the spring.
