U.S.: Russia Lied About its Involvement in Ukraine


U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, told an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on Thursday that Russia has "outright lied" over its military activity inside Ukraine, where Russian-backed separatists have been fighting Ukrainian armed forces.

"Russian soldiers, tanks and air defense have supported and fight alongside separatists as they open a new front in a crisis manufactured and fueled by Russia," she said.
