Russian troops are still concentrating on the border with Ukraine. It is increasingly said that Russia may attack its neighbor at the beginning of next year. These reports were commented on by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. – Any movement of the troops of the Russian Federation on our territory does not pose a threat to anyone and should not worry anyone – he assured.
Peskov called the reports in Western media that Russia is planning to invade Ukraine “throws”, which appear as part of a “deliberate campaign”.
Its aim, he added, may be to distract attention from the “aggressive ideas of the Ukrainian authorities”. According to Peskov, these ideas are to concern those parts of the Ukrainian Donbas that have been taken over by separatists.
In addition, as he noted, the Ukrainian army is using equipment provided by NATO for “provocation”. “All of this is in violation of the Minsk agreements,” Peskov added.
