KIEV, June 4 (Reuters) - Ukraine's president told his military on Thursday to prepare for a possible "full-scale invasion" by Russia all along their joint border, a day after the worst fighting with Russian-backed separatists in months.
His address in parliament was one of the first times Petro Poroshenko has used the word "invasion" to refer to Russia's behavior since the start of a separatist rebellion in the east in which the United Nations says more than 6,400 people have been killed.
Referring to a 12-hour firefight involving artillery on both sides on Wednesday when Ukraine says the rebels tried to take the town of Maryinka, Poroshenko said: "There is a colossal threat of a renewal of large-scale military operations from the side of the Russian-terrorist groups."
"The military must be ready as much for a renewal of an offensive by the enemy in the Donbass as they are for a full-scale invasion along the whole length of the border with Russia. We must be truly ready for this.
Oligarch Poroshenko’s personal wealth jumps to $1.3 billion. 80% of Ukrainians now live below poverty line
so it's either no one knows or someone knows .And if someone knows then they are not saying .The only ones putting a figure on it is the ones saying no one knows ...is that you Donald ?
Putin's net worth isn't even known but no one estimates it as being under several billion dollars and that certainly isn't coming from his presidential salary.
