Ukraine President Claims Russia Invaded Ukraine, and Ukraine Destroyed...

Moscow's stand-off with Kiev intensified dramatically on Friday night after the Ukrainian government said it had blown up a Russian military convoy inside its territory, news that sparked a flurry of diplomatic activity to try to defuse the deepening crisis.

Just hours after a Russian humanitarian aid convoy of 270 white military trucks, some of which were empty, pulled up in the town of Kamensk-Shakhtinsky near Ukraine's border, Kiev said it had launched an artillery strike against a separate column of some two-dozen Russian military vehicles that had crossed into its territory under the cover of darkness.

In a phone call with British prime minister David Cameron on Thursday evening, details of which emerged on Friday, Ukraine's president Petro Poroshenko confirmed a Russian military convoy had entered Ukraine but said most of it had been "eliminated" in an artillery strike.
