Ukraine’s new prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk says his country is refusing to respond with force to what he calls Russian “provocation” in Crimea.

The increasing instability in Ukraine has seen Western powers including Britain and the United States call for an urgent de-escalation of tensions.

“The inadequate presence of Russian troops on Ukrainian territory is a provocation, and Russian attempts to make Ukraine react with force have failed,” Mr Yatsenyuk said at a televised cabinet meeting.

“It is unacceptable when armoured Russian military vehicles are out in the centre of Ukrainian towns.

“We do not give in to provocative actions, we do not use force and we demand that Russia stop its provocative actions and return the troops to base.”

The prime minister’s comments came as Russian president Vladimir Putin sought approval to move armed forces into Ukrainian territory.

Earlier, Ukraine’s defence chief had accused Russia of already sending 6,000 troops and 30 armoured personnel carriers into Crimea, the restive peninsula trying to gain broader independence from new pro-EU leaders in Kiev.
