European officials have confirmed Russian troops have arrived in eastern Ukraine after President Vladimir Putin announced that he would recognize the independence of two separatist regions.

Fox News reports:

“Russian troops have entered in Donbas,” the name for the area where the two separatist regions, Donetsk and Luhansk, are located, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said in Paris. “We consider Donbas part of Ukraine.”

When asked whether Putin’s decision to order Russian troops into the regions amounts to an invasion, Borrell said, “I wouldn’t say that’s a fully-fledged invasion, but Russian troops are on Ukrainian soil.”

Poland’s Defense Ministry and British Health Secretary Sajid Javid also said Russian forces had entered Ukraine’s east. Javid went further, telling Sky News that “the invasion of Ukraine has begun.”

“We are waking up to a very dark day in Europe and it’s clear from what we have already seen and found out today that the Russians, President Putin, has decided to attack the sovereignty of Ukraine and its territorial integrity,” Javid said.

With an estimated 150,000 Russian troops massed on three sides of Ukraine, the U.S. has warned that Moscow has already decided to invade.

Ukraine President Zelenskyy has attempted to downplay concerns of a Russian invasion but on Tuesday signaled the country could cut off diplomatic ties with Moscow.

  1. what bunch of horse shit Putin recognized both place are sovereign for the want to exist the Ukraine period and they have been fighting for it so Putin is sending in peace keeps of his own and lets be frank i don’t trust what is being said by this government it has been caught lying way to many time to be credible at all any more

      1. Four years consumed by accusations of collusion with Russia, totally unfounded as it turned out. Now we know from the latest Durham report, much too late, that Hillary and Obama both hired companies to spy on Trump during his campaign. You are deluded! Just think what Trump could have accomplished with even a little cooperation from Congress rather than fighting them. So, I take it you are SO proud of our current lame POTUS? Are ya bragging about him?

        1. Another take is that Trump is a weak puke.
          I am not proud of Biden, other than that he beat the weak puke.
          What companies did Hillary and Obama hire?
          When did they hire them?
          Why did Trump fail to have them arrested?
          Trump is a weak puke?

      2. Trump couldn’t lock up Hillary or Joe by himself. It has to be done by congress and congress was not friends with Trump.

      3. If Trump had locked up these 2, he would’ve been accused of trying to influence the election.
        Putin, and everyone else, knows we have weak president presently.
        If Trump were still in office this wouldn’t be happening.

    1. Trump is not president today so whatever you gress would only guessing. With what Trump did to those two terrorist leaders would tell Putin I better be careful with Trump he just might do something that could cause trouble.

    2. He probably wouldn’t have to do anything. He was on good terms with Putin. War is not good for the business of the world. Putin knew Trump was a strong businessman and a strong leader.

        1. because he is a commie pig like that chinkee ville pig and the daddy, el castro, of justina truedough, former pig of Ottawa .. lots of albertis live in rooooosha and they have them running the swine ranches …

          1. Russia has not been Communist since Reagan tore down the wall.
            China not since Mao.
            The Conservative Party in Canada got 31% of the vote in the last election.

  2. How do we know that the people of eastern Ukraine are not welcoming Russia as a savior from the corrupt Ukraine government? The government there is almost as corrupt as this Bid en regime.

  3. Is it possible that Russia is utilizing this threat because of how close Special Counsel Durham is to filing criminal charges against Hillary and the gang?
