Report: Ukrainian Troops Gathering on Russian Border


Ukrainian customs authorities reported military vehicles arriving in gathering points in the cities of Kharkov, Luhansk and Donetsk opposite the Russian border, Tuesday morning, according to a Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman cited by the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Secretary of State John Kerry of the United States is scheduled to land in the capital, Kiev, Tuesday morning, to monitor the Russian army takeover of Crimea. During a United Nations Security Council discussion, U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said Russia's actions were not a mission to protect human rights, calling them a violation of international law and Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
