Putin warns against foreign interference.
The most recent report on the developing tension in Ukraine says Russia has eventually launched military action in Ukraine as commanded by Vladimir Putin, the Russian President. The report says that multiple explosions were witnessed in Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine, and other cities in the early hours of Thursday, February 24th.
Ukraine also claims to have brought down five Russian planes and a helicopter in the east of the country, the report says.
According to Putin, the launch of a military operation was a decision reached to defend separatists in eastern Ukraine. Meanwhile, Russia demands an end to NATO’s expansion eastwards and said Ukrainian membership of the US-led Atlantic military alliance was unacceptable. In the wake of the attacks in Ukraine, Putin warns against foreign interference as that will lead to devasting consequences.
