Poroshenko Triggers 'Invasion' Alarm as Kiev Crumbles Under Militia Offensive

Ukraine's President has said Russia's invading East Ukraine - although the statement has already been rejected by Moscow. The strong rhetoric comes amid a powerful counter-offensive by anti-government forces in Ukraine's restive Eastern regions.

Eastern Ukrainian militia are well equipped with numbers of tanks, artillery and other armoured vehicles. And if Russia is aiding the rebels in the East of Ukraine it is because of the NATO backed fascists occupying Kiev that caused the conflict in the first place.

There would be no fighting if the forces from Kiev withdrew and proper elections were held with perhaps the east of the country made into a semi autonomous region.
