George Stephanopoulos grilled Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak on This Week Sunday morning, trying to get Kislyak to firmly deny his country would invade eastern Ukraine following its annexation of the Crimean peninsula.

“How about eastern Ukraine, sir?” Stephanopoulos asked. “Can you state unequivocally that Russian troops will not push into eastern Ukraine?”

“We have said so many times that we have no intent, no interest in crossing the border,” Kislyak responded.

“But does that mean you won’t do it?”
