Tanks moving into Ukraine

Ukraine's coup-imposed president Aleksandr Turchinov has ordered the protester-held local govt HQ in Donetsk to be taken under 'state protection' as armed personnel and armored vehicles have been reported moving into the eastern region of Ukraine.  Also, the Russian Foreign Ministry has voiced concerns over the buildup of Ukrainian forces and US mercenaries in the southeastern part of the country, calling on Kiev to immediately cease military preparations which could lead to a civil war.  "We are particularly concerned that the operation involves some 150 American mercenaries from a private company Greystone Ltd., dressed in the uniform of the Ukrainian special task police unit Sokol," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.  "Organizers and participants of such incitement are assuming a huge responsibility for threatening upon the rights, freedoms and lives of Ukrainian citizens as well as the stability of Ukraine."   US Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove commander in charge of the NATO alliance's military presence in Europe said we have concerns about further escalation have been rampant in the days last week that Russia had not only amassed roughly 40,000 troops near the federation's border with eastern Ukraine.  But also has the resources to invade and annex that portion of the country as well in the span of just three to five days.
