Invasion could topple Putin, warns Ukraine envoy

Massive casualties could backfire on the Kremlin, ambassador to U.N. says

Ukraine's ambassador to the United Nations, Sergiy Kyslytsya, in New York, says the global economy would suffer if his country and Russia went to war.

NEW YORK -- As the pace of global diplomacy to preempt a war between Russia and Ukraine picks up, Kyiv's ambassador to the United Nations -- where the issue of Ukrainian security was finally discussed last week by the U.S. and its partners -- has weighed in.
