Washington continues to monitor Russian troop movements near the country’s border with Ukraine, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby briefed reporters on Friday.
“We continue to watch and monitor unusual Russian military activity near Ukraine and we also continue to consult with allies and partners on the issue,” Kirby told reporters.
Asked what is unusual about the Russian military activity, Kirby said that it is a matter of scale. “It’s a matter of the size of the units that we’re seeing.”
