    Kiev is pushing for military solution of conflict in the east of Ukraine instead of trying to stabilize the situation, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin told Security Council.

    UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — The main goal of Ukraine’s actions in the Donbass region is to seek a military solution to the conflict, Churkin said.

    "Instead of trying to bring the situation in Donbass to normal and search for a reasonable compromise under the Normandy format and in the framework of the contact group, Ukrainian authorities persist in trying to find a military solution to the conflict," Chrukin said on Thursday.

      They have still got the UK media on board. ITV evening news saying Russia was invading Ukraine. There again, BBC did video the OSCE providing cover for the tanks, sent by Kiev to the neutral buffer zone, in a residential area.
