The same Borrell who last April provided the most exaggerated estimate of Russia troops in the West of their nation: over 150,000.

Borrell: 100,000 Russian soldiers could still attack Ukraine

European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell believes that a Russian military invasion of Ukraine is still possible as BBC reported.

“There are 100,000 Russian troops on the other side of the border. I suppose they haven’t gone there to drink coffee!”, Borrell noted.

The European diplomat said he had received assurances from the US, which had held talks with Russia on strategic stability, that no issue would be negotiated without “close cooperation, coordination, and participation of the EU”.
