Ukraine warns it may take 'years' to end separatist war

Ukraine's Minister of Defense Colonel-General Stepan Poltorak listens to US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter on a translation headset as they conduct a press conference at the Pentagon September 24, 2015, in Washington, DCUkraine’s defence minister warned Wednesday it may take years to settle the ex-Soviet republic’s pro-Russian separatist conflict that has killed nearly 9,200 people and plunged Moscow’s relations with the West to a post-Cold War low. Stepan Poltorak also accused Russia of keeping several thousand troops in the war-torn eastern region and said his impoverished country was in dire need of Western weapons to help quash the two-year revolt. “In my opinion, it will take years,” Poltorak told a small group of reporters when asked how long it may take to resolve the war.
