Ukrainian and NATO officials on Thursday said Russian forces had crossed the border into Ukraine to support pro-Russia separatists.

At a special Organization for Security and Cooperation meeting in Vienna, Ukrainian Ambassador Ihor Prokopchuk, told reporters "what we registered is a direct invasion of the Russian military into the eastern regions of Ukraine."

Russian Ambassador Andrey Kelin denied the accusation at the OSC meeting. He said, "No Russian forces are crossing in any point the border of Ukraine.'

A top NATO official said that well over 1,000 Russian troops are now operating inside Ukraine. He said "they are supporting separatists [and] fighting with them."

NATO also released satellite images that it said show Russian fighting forces carrying out in military operations in Ukraine. The alliance said the images show Russian artillery groups near the southeastern town of Krasnodon.

On Tuesday in Belarus, Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko met with Russia's President Vladimir Putin to discuss a peace process.

Dr. Bruce Ayleward is the Assistant Director-General for the World Health Organization. He said medical experts, in his words, "are seeing today, in contrast to previous Ebola outbreaks: multiple hotspots within these countries — not a single, remote forested area, the kind of environments that have been tackled in the past. And then not multiple hotspots within one country, but international disease."

The WHO is launching a plan designed to control the spread. The effort could take up to nine months and almost 500 million dollars. The organization also warned the disease would kill thousands more people before it is contained.

An experimental Ebola vaccine from GlaxoSmithKline is being tested on volunteers. The drug company hopes to produce 10,000 doses for emergency deployment, if the results are good.
