Ukrainian Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsya says there are increasing chances of war with Russia.

They are growing, I would say. We don’t know what Putin has in his mind and what would be his decision,” Deshchytsya told ABC’s “This Week” political talk show, referring to the Russian president.

“That’s why this situation is becoming even more explosive than it used to be a week ago,” the Ukrainian foreign minister added.

The remarks were broadcast a day after Russian forces used armored personnel carriers and stun grenades to break into the Belbek airbase near Simferopol, the main city on the Crimean peninsula.
