Lithuania has called reports of Russian troops deployed in eastern Ukraine, an 'obvious invasion.'

Ukraine announced on Wednesday that a group of Russian soldiers and armored personnel carriers crossed the border and moved towards Telmanovo, 80 km south of Donetsk, the encircled separatists' stronghold, and 20 km from the Russian border.

Russia has denied any of its convoy's have crossed into the Ukraine.

"Lithuania demands to immediately withdraw Russian forces, weapons and military equipment from sovereign territory of Ukraine, and to cease providing any support to the armed separatists in eastern Ukraine," the statement read.

"The Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that continuous supply of weapons from the Russian Federation to armed groups in eastern Ukraine and actions of the Russian armed forces in Ukrainian territory will be met with appropriate response from the international community and its institutions."

A special OSCE meeting is being held today to discuss the situation whilst Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko canceled a meeting to Turkey due to the crisis.
