KHARKIV, Ukraine. March 3 (Interfax) – A senior Ukrainian border guard official said on Monday that no Russian Armed Forces had entered Ukraine across its northern border.
“We are conducting permanent monitoring. It is true that there are [armed forces] deployed in the regions [bordering Ukraine]. They started exercises a week ago, and they are moving through their own territory. They haven’t come close to the national border,” Miron Sydor, head of the Border Guard’s Eastern Regional Department, told Interfax.
