Ukraine: Instability and tension increase

About 120 thousand inhabitants, Slaviansk is the stronghold of the separatist revolt pró-Rússia. The Executive of Kiev announced the resumption of the antiterrorist operation in the East of Ukraine.

The Russian President was considered to be a "serious crime" practiced by Ukrainian authorities to turn to the army to fight separatist rebels. Vladimir Putin stated that there would be "consequences".

In response to the military operation in Kiev, Moscow has unleashed new military exercises close to the border with Ukraine.

Yet on Thursday u.s. troops arrived to Riga, Latvia, starting the military maneuvers, reinforcing the NATO presence in the region.

Washington will send about six hundred soldiers in exercises, for Poland, Estonia and Lithuania, to ensure the stability of NATO allies, after the annexation of Crimea by Russia.
