WASHINGTON, November 30. / TASS /. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby argued at a regular press briefing that Russia continues to build up its troops near the Russian-Ukrainian border.
He was asked to comment on reports about Russian military personnel allegedly near the Russian-Ukrainian border. “We are closely monitoring this indicator. [на границе]… – asserted the representative of the American defense department.
“These are different types of divisions that continue to gather at, or not at, but near the Ukrainian border,” Kirby said.
According to him, the United States “continues to move through great alarm along the borders with Ukraine.” “We continue to urge Russia to be more transparent about what it is doing, what its intentions are, what units it is deploying there and for what purpose,” a Pentagon spokesman said.
“I, of course, cannot talk about their intentions, but we remain that any escalation or aggressive actions will cause great concern not only for the United States, but also for our allies and partners on the European continent,” Kirby said.
Recently, in the West and in Ukraine, more and more often sounds “possible” Russian invasion of Ukrainian territory. The press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov called such information empty and baseless escalation of tension, stressing that Russia poses no threat to anyone. However, he did not rule out the possibility of provocations to justify such serious consequences.
