Russia And Ukraine On The Brink Of War

A respected foreign journalist living in Ukraine is warning that a war that most Americans cannot even imagine “teeters on the razor thin edge of becoming real”. When Russia opened fire on Ukrainian Navy vessels and captured three of their ships, it made headlines all over the globe. Now the Ukraine has imposed martial law for 30 days as President Petro Poroshenko warns of the “extremely serious” threat of a land invasion.
