KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's acting defence minister Myhailo Koval said the Ukrainian military will fight if Russia sends in troops under the guise of a peace-keeping operation, the Interfax Ukraine news agency reported on Saturday.
"The United Nations has given no such (peace-keeping) mandate to the Russians," the agency quoted Koval as saying. "Everybody is already fed up with Russia's games with peace-keeping."
"If they come, they'll get what's coming to them: we will conduct combat operations."
