Crisis deepens as Ukraine says Russian soldiers back rebel thrust

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's president said on Thursday that Russian troops had entered his country in support of pro-Moscow rebels who captured a key coastal town, sharply escalating a five-month-old separatist war. Petro Poroshenko told a meeting of security chiefs that the situation was "extraordinarily difficult ... but controllable" after Russian-backed rebels seized the town of Novoazovsk in the south-east of the former Soviet republic #border #Russia #European Union #President #Ukraine #european #city #united #fighting #Donetsk #separatists #from-the-border
