Transcript for Russia Sends Troops Into Ukraine
We begin with some breaking news. What is being called a full-scale invasion, reports this morning that Russia is sending more troops across the border of Ukraine in two locations just hours after the Obama administration voiced concern about Moscow's unwillingness to tell the truth about its intentions. ABC's lama Hasan is following it, good morning, lama. Reporter: Good morning to you, Amy. This morning Ukraine is admitting its troops are retreating and Russian forces are now in control of southeast Ukraine. As you can see in this new video coming in, the explosion of violence on the streets. The Ukrainian president is canceling a trip to Turkey because of what he describes a Russian invasion, Ukraine accusing Russia of opening a new front in the conflict. ABC news has spoken with a Ukrainian defense ministry spokesman who confirmed to us at least 5,000 Russian forces are now fighting and supporting the rebels, convoys of hundreds of vehicles and armored personnel carriers have been rolling into Ukraine over the last few days. Now, Ukraine's president has just called an urgent meeting of his security council to decide how to respond. Amy. All right, lama, thank you very much. We'll follow this situation all morning long.
