Ukrainian President Poroshenko said on Thursday Russian forces had been "brought into Ukraine" and he called an urgent meeting of Ukraine's security and defense council to decide the next steps to take in the crisis. "I made the decision to cancel a working visit to the Republic of Turkey in connection with the rapidly deteriorating situation in Donetsk region, in particular in Amvrosiyivka and Starobesheve, as Russian troops have actually been brought into Ukraine," he said in a statement on the presidential website.

Ukrainian servicemen are seen at their position during fighting with pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Ukrainian town of IlovayskBy Richard Balmforth and Pavel Polityuk KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine accused Russia on Thursday of bringing troops into the southeast of the country in support of pro-Moscow separatist rebels. Ukraine's security and defense council said the border town of Novoazovsk and other parts of Ukraine's south-east had fallen under the control of Russian forces who together with rebels were staging a counter-offensive. "A counter-offensive by Russian troops and separatist units is continuing in south-east Ukraine," the council said in a post on Twitter. President Petro Poroshenko, in a statement explaining his decision to cancel a visit to Turkey, said: "Russian troops have actually been brought into Ukraine." Russia denies intervening in Ukraine by arming the rebels or sending soldiers across the border.
