Poroshenko: Full-blown ‘war’ possible as situation in Ukraine’s east deteriorates

Full-scale war can flare up instantly, Ukraine president Petro Poroshenko warned at the International Support for Ukraine conference in Kyiv on April 28.

“The threat of war is still hanging over us. It is our reality. War may erupt at any moment,” Poroshenko said. “But we are prepared to do everything we can to erase any possibility to doubt or retreat.”

He also promised to find a way of resolving the conflict in easternmost Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts where combined Russian-separatist forces have waged an unprovoked war against Kyiv since mid-April 2014.
