Recent military successes of the militia of the People's Republic of Donetsk forced Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko cancel his visit to Turkey and convene an urgent meeting of the Council of National Security and Defence.

"I have decided to cancel the work visit to the Republic of Turkey in connection with the rapidly deteriorating situation in the Donetsk region, particularly in the settlements of Amvrosievka and Starobeshevo," the president said. Poroshenko also said that Russian troops invaded Ukraine.
