Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered a war of aggression in Ukraine and has warned other nations that intervening in Russia's activities will result in "consequences they have never seen." Concussive blasts were reported in Kyiv, Kharkiv, and other parts of Ukraine when President Putin was addressing them.
Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs said that the country will defend itself from Putin's "war of aggression." The minister said Ukraine will defend itself and will win the war.
Putin's move is approaching a statement by Secretary of State Antony Blinken as Russia invades Ukraine within hours. The Russians had previously stated that the rebels had requested assistance from the Kremlin in stopping Ukrainian "aggression," and the explosions shocked the independent eastern city of Donetsk.
The border between Russia and Ukraine has seen a massive deployment of Russian military columns for several days. Tensions had been mounting after Vladimir Putin recognized two separatist regions in Ukraine as independent, and he ordered the deployment of what he called peacekeepers.
