The White House warned Russia to keep its troops out of Ukraine on Sunday night, amid fears that Moscow may step in with military force following the overthrow of Ukrainian President, The Telegraph reports.
Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice said it would be a “grave mistake” for Vladimir Putin to send soldiers into Ukraine to restore a friendly government after the upheaval.
“It’s in nobody’s interest to see violence return and the situation escalate,” Mrs Rice said.
Meanwhile Moscow accused the Ukrainian opposition of breaking a peace deal to seize power as Russia recalled its ambassador from Kiev, blaming the “deteriorating situation” in its neighbour.
Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, said opposition leaders had broken the agreement mediated by European Foreign Ministers on Friday, “having in effect seized power in Kiev, refused to disarm and continued to place its bets on violence.”
