President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko's media interview on September 21, 2014.
(Worthy News) - Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said there are a 'record number' of Russian troops on his country's border with Russia, NewsWeek reported.
Speaking on Ukrainian television, Poroshenko said that the information came from Nato, US and EU sources as well as Ukrainian intelligence.
Reports of an increasing Russian presence on the border have been recurring since Nato commander Philip Breedlove warned last month of the risk of a return to heavy fighting in Eastern Ukraine. Kiev has repeatedly reported snap surges in violence by Russian backed rebels in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions during this time.
Most recently Ukraine's defence forces complained of 540 violations of the ceasefire signed between Moscow, Kiev and the rebels in February, in the space of a week at the end of June. [ Source ]
