United States, Europe claim Russia building up troops on border with Ukraine

Officials in the United States and Europe in recent weeks have noted a buildup of troops on the border with Ukraine….

“The renewed movements of Russian forces in the area come as the Kremlin embraces a harder line on Ukraine,” the Washington Post said.


The newspaper notes that the West also draws attention to the fact that “the situation also comes as the simmering seven years and a half conflict between Ukrainian forces and Russian-backed separatists in the eastern Donbas region enters a new stage.”

The Washington Post draws attention to the fact that this situation is developing against the background of aggravation of relations between Moscow and NATO after Russia suspended its mission to NATO.
