 Britain and Lithuania Alarmed by Russian Military Vehicles Entering Ukraine: "There Could Be Very Serious Consequences"

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond voiced alarm on Friday at reports that Russian military vehicles had crossed into Ukraine overnight, saying it could have "very serious" consequences.

"I'm very alarmed by reports that Russian military vehicles may have crossed the border this morning... If there are any Russian military personnel or vehicles in eastern Ukraine, they need to be withdrawn immediately or the consequences could be very serious," he told reporters at a European Union foreign ministers' meeting, apparently referring to media reports, Censor.NET reports, citing Reuters.

Also the Lithuania's foreign minister spoke about the Russian military who entered Ukraine Thursday night with reporters at the same emergency meeting. "We are very much concerned about the situation developing (in Ukraine ) because, on the one hand, we are talking very much about this so-called humanitarian convoy but, at the same time, we see that escalation continues, and we have reports that during the night 70 pieces of military equipment again entered through the border," Reuters reports.
