KIEV, Ukraine — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is calling on the country to resist giving into panic in the wake of Russian forces entering the country.

Poroshenko called an urgent session of the national security council on Thursday. Security officials said two columns of tanks entered the country’s southeast earlier in the day.

“Destabilization of the situation and panic, this is as much of a weapon of the enemy as tanks,” Poroshenko told the security council, according to the Interfax news agency.
