Reports of Russian Forces Penetrating Ukrainian Territory 19:02 (GMT)
There have been numerous reports in the last 24 hours of Russian troops massing at the Ukrainian border, and accusations that Russia forces may be firing from inside Russian territory on to Ukraine.
Now at 20:09 local time, Ukrainskaya Pravda has published a story headlined "RF Troops Penetrated into Ukrainian Territory, Organized Ambush," citing Ukrainian Council on National Security and Defense Andrei Lysenko.
The story has not been confirmed by other sources.
The Interpreter has translated the story:
If Putin was going to invade, I think he would have done it already under the thousand and one pretexts Russian state-controlled media has invented.
They have been preparing for this for months. The staged “shooting at the border guards” is their idea of a spark?
