BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that Ukraine is under the threat of “full-scale war” with Russia, while speaking to reporters in Kiev on Tuesday.

Citing the country’s intelligence reports, Poroshenko claimed that the number of Russian units deployed along the border with Ukraine has “grown dramatically” and the number of Russian tanks has “tripled.”

The Ukrainian leader pointed out that “talks about possible drills do not justify these increases.”

“I don’t want anyone to think this is fun and games,” he added.

Speaking about the introduction of martial law in Ukraine, Poroshenko said that “if Russia doesn’t carry out an invasion in the area of the Joint Forces Operation and the illegally-annexed Crimea,” the law would not bring restrictions on the rights and freedoms of citizens.
