Russia accused of ‘Open Aggression’

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko accused Russia on Monday of ‘direct and open aggression’ in which he said had radically changed the battlefield balance as Kiev’s forces suffer  huge reverses in the war with pro-Moscow separatists. Ukraine’s military said its forces had been ordered to pull back from a vital airport near the city of Luhansk, where they had been battling a Russian tank battalion. Petro said that there would be high-level personnel changes in the Ukrainian armed forces, whose troops fled a new rebel advance in the south which Kiev’s Western allies say has been backed up by Russian armoured columns.
