Report: Ukraine Starts Campaign in Slavyansk

Ukrainian army units have raided outposts of pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk, according to Friday-morning reports by Russian media, who called the action the beginning of a special campaign.

On Thursday evening, the United States called a Russian demand for a pullout of Ukrainian troops from the area absurd. White House Spokesman Jay Carney said Russia will pay the price if it escalates the situation or invades Ukraine.
