White House declares Russian invasion in Ukraine

The White House is now calling Russian action in Ukraine an “invasion,” and says more sanctions are to come in response, Fox News has learned.

Russian troops arrived in eastern Ukraine hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he would recognize the independence of two separatist regions, officials said.

The Kremlin then raised the stakes further Tuesday, by saying that recognition extends even to parts held by Ukrainian forces.
