Ukraine's President said he could not rule out an invasion by the Kremlin
Ukraine's president has warned that a full-scale invasion from Russia could be on the horizon - with Europe powerless to fight the Kremlin's 'aggression'.
Petro Poroshenko made the statement at the opening of the country's September parliament session on September 6.
He warned that with Europe's internal strength being tested by the migration crisis and terrorist attacks, elections across the continent could see governments come to power which are more willing to compromise with Russia.
Poroshenko said: "Ukraine will continue to need strong international support in the fight against Russian aggression."
"But securing this support is becoming increasingly difficult for our diplomats due to different objective and subjective factors."
"Europe still speaks with one voice, but there are also countries where the Russian accent is already too audible."
