'Ukraine conflict is a war'

WARSAW, Poland - Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski on Friday described the fighting in neighbouring Ukraine as a ''war,'' as the West accused Moscow of direct involvement in the escalating conflict.

"If it looks like a war, sounds like a war and kills like a war, it is a war," Sikorski wrote on Twitter about the now four-month conflict between government troops and pro-Moscow rebels. Sikorski wrote in response to a tweet from his Swedish counterpart Carl Bildt that read, "We must call a spade a spade: this is the second Russian invasion of Ukraine within a year."

Russia has repeatedly denied Western allegations that it is sending troops into eastern Ukraine, though it was forced to admit earlier this week that a number of its troops captured by Ukrainian forces had crossed the border "by accident."
