KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Officials with Ukraine and NATO are leaving no doubt that the Russian military has invaded southeastern Ukraine. 

A top Ukrainian official says two columns of tanks and military vehicles moved across the border from Russia today, after missiles were fired at a border post. And a NATO official says at least 1,000 Russian troops have poured into Ukraine with sophisticated equipment. 

Ukraine's president called an emergency meeting of his security council, and urged Ukrainians not to panic -- saying that would only help the enemy.
