SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (AP) - Ukraine's new prime minister is urging Russian President Vladimir Putin to pull back his troops in the dispute between their two countries over Crimea, saying "we are on the brink of disaster."
Arseniy Yatsenyuk spoke after a closed session of his new parliament in Kiev, calling on Putin to "pull back his military."
A convoy of hundreds of Russian troops headed toward the capital of Ukraine's Crimea region on Sunday, a day after Russia's forces took over the strategic Black Sea peninsula without firing a shot.
