Ukraine: A full invasion by Russia could trigger World War Three, warns government minister in Kiev

A full invasion of Ukraine by Russia would spread conflict around Europe and could even trigger World War Three, a Ukrainian government minister has warned.

How likely is a Russian invasion?

Experts believe that President Vladimir Putin is using the credible threat of military force to signal that Russia is serious about defending its “red lines” on Ukraine.
