    Russia did pledge not to continue meddle in Ukraine, clearly it has. on the other hand the regime has been pretty brutal.
    on the 3rd hand so have the separatists. ain't a lot of good guys here..

    Ukraine's president Petro Poroshenko has told David Cameron that a column of Russian armoured vehicles that entered Ukrainian territory late on Thursday night had been destroyed by Ukrainian forces.
    In a phone call to Cameron on Friday, Poroshenko appeared to confirm a report by the Guardian and other journalists that Russian armoured personnel carriers had crossed the border. He suggested that Ukrainian troops who have been fighting pro-Russian separatists in the east of Ukraine swiftly knocked out the Russian column.
    A statement from Poroshenko's office said: "The president informed [Cameron] that the information was trustworthy because the majority of those machines [Russian military vehicles] had been eliminated by the Ukrainian artillery at night."
    It added: "The president expressed concern over the situation on the border, particularly, over the fact that the inflow of Russian arms and military machines in Ukraine through the open part of the border continued."
    Russia has denied that its troops entered Ukrainian territory, saying that a column of armoured vehicles spotted on the border was a unit of border guards patrolling the frontier.
    A day after the Guardian and Daily Telegraph reported seeing 23 Russian armoured personnel carriers, supported by fuel trucks and other military logistics vehicles, crossing into Ukrainian territory, the FSB said there was a detachment in the area of border guards set up to assure safety and "prevent the infiltration of armed people on the territory of the Russian federation".
    But the security service stressed that the unit operated exclusively on Russian territory. "In this regard, information on a group of Russian soldiers crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border is not true," RIA Novosti quoted an official as saying.
    Britain said it had summoned the Russian envoy over the incursion reports.

    The Separatists deny this has happened.

    The Russians deny this has happened.

    There are no supporting photos.

    Would Russia send in an undefended column?

    Why is Ukraine news suspicious?

    Russia fighting Ukraine would be like the US fighting Russia. I highly doubt this story is true, but they can dream.

    Do you think the two "journalists" that promolgated this fantasy will be added to the Judith Miller list?
    Actually, it is time to generate a list of these bogus source articles to clean up the profession.

    Nah I think they're just obscure journalists that no one knows of and no one will know of. I am however reminded of:
