Poland PM warns of possible Russian direct intervention in Ukraine

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk warns the threat of a direct intervention by Russia’s military in Ukraine has risen over the last couple of days

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on Wednesday that he believed there was a “growing threat of direct Russian intervention” in eastern Ukraine.

Tusk said on Wednesday that his assessment was based on information received in the previous dozen hours or so, but gave no details.

“The threat of direct Russian intervention is certainly greater than it was a few days ago,” he said.

Air strikes and artillery fire between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian troops in Donetsk have brought the violence closer than ever to the city centre, as Kiev’s forces move in on the rebel stronghold.
