Poland Warns Russian Troop Buildup May Signal Invasion

Poland’s foreign minister warned that a renewed buildup of Russian troops on Ukraine’s border may signal an invasion as President Vladimir Putin ordered a response to U.S. and European sanctions. U.S. stocks fell.

Russian army units stationed near the eastern Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, scene of months of bloody separatist unrest, are poised to pressure or invade, Radoslaw Sikorski told the TVN24 BIS television channel. Poland is among the European Union nations seeking the toughest response to Russia over Ukraine. Another eastern nation, Estonia, in March also said that Putin may be planning a military incursion.
