Ukraine's Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Saturday he was "convinced" that Moscow would not launch a military offensive, after Russia's parliament approved the deployment of troops in the country.

"I am convinced that Russia will not launch an intervention as this would mean war and the end of all relations between the two countries," he said in a televised address to the nation.
