Ukraine’s acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsya said this morning that the likelihood of war between his country and Russia is growing as Russian troops continued to seize Ukrainian military bases in the annexed Crimea region.

Mr. Deschchytsya told ABC that “we don’t know what (Russian President Vladimir) Putin has in his mind… that’s why this situation is becoming even more explosive than it used to be a week ago.”

NATO commander Gen. Philip Breedlove told a conference in Brussels that the Russian force along the Ukrainian border “is very, very sizable and very, very ready” and that “Russia is acting much more like an adversary than a partner.” Gen. Breedlove said of particular concern is the breakaway Moldovan region of Trans-Dniester, which could become a potential target for Russia.
