MP says diplomacy the first step after Ukraine invaded

A blatant disregard for international law.  

That reaction from MP Anthony Rota after dozens of explosions went off in cities across Ukraine Thursday, as Russia’s invasion gets underway.  

Missile attacks targeted several points, including the capital of Kyiv, with Ukrainian officials saying troops and tanks crossed the border at several points in the east and south. 

Rota says economic sanctions are a start. 

“Once we get past this point and see if it does have an impact and it does work, then if it doesn’t we have to look at further steps,” he says. “To try to make threats at this point, we’re no better than the bully who’s attacking Ukraine right now.” 

Rota says they need to try and end this diplomatically, “but not be afraid to escalate if we see fit.”

Ukraine’s president has declared martial law, calling it a full-scale invasion.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says it’s a “special operation” to secure rebel-held areas in eastern Ukraine which he’s recognized as independent nations.
