Ukrainian defense min says invasion unlikely

Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov (pictured) told ICTV it is unlikely that Russia will invade Ukraine in the near future.

Moscow has yet to strike or make moves that would have Kiev believe that "tomorrow they will go on the offensive," Reznikov explained.

Nonetheless, some of the world powers have expressed concerns over Russian troop build-ups near its border with Ukraine, with thousands of American soldiers remaining on standby to help Washington's allies counter a possible invasion.
