Poland fears dangerous game in Ukraine
(02-27 19:55)

Poland warned against the eruption of a regional conflict in Crimea.
“I warn those who have done this [seized buildings] and those who have facilitated it, that regional conflicts begin this way,'' Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski told reporters in Warsaw.
“This is a very dangerous game,'' added Sikorski, who along with his French and German counterparts, brokered a roadmap to end bloodshed on Friday in Kiev.
Sikorski's warning came as dozens of pro-Russian gunmen in combat fatigues took control of Ukrainian parliament and government buildings on the Crimea peninsula.
As a result, Ukraine told Russian troops from Moscow's Black Sea Fleet in Sevastapol to remain in their bases.
Sikorski had already warned on Wednesday that a break-up of Ukraine into a pro-Russian east and a pro-European west is an “imaginable catastrophe, but a highly undesirable one.’’
“The position on Ukraine's [territorial] integrity, towards the entire Ukrainian state, is the basic test for the credibility of each state, which is participating in these historic events,'' Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk also told reporters in Warsaw today.—AFP
