Russia has pulled 175 thousand troops to the border with Ukraine.

Against the background of the escalation of the situation in the Donbass by the Ukrainian military, it became known that over the past few weeks the group of Russian troops stationed in the immediate vicinity of the border with Ukraine has reached the mark of approximately 175 thousand troops. This data was obtained thanks to images from satellite spacecraft. At the same time, judging by the data on the movement of Russian military equipment, the number of Russian troops stationed in the immediate vicinity of the Ukrainian border will reach 200 thousand people.

“As tensions rise between Washington and Moscow over a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine, US intelligence has discovered that the Kremlin is planning a multi-front offensive early next year with up to 175 troops, according to US officials and an intelligence document. The Kremlin is sending troops to the border with Ukraine, demanding from Washington guarantees that Ukraine will not join NATO and that the alliance will refrain from certain hostilities in and around Ukraine. The crisis has sparked fears of a renewed war on European soil and comes ahead of a virtual meeting scheduled next week between President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin. An unclassified US intelligence document, which includes satellite photographs, shows that Russian troops are concentrated in four locations. According to the document, 000 combat tactical groups are currently deployed, as well as "newly arrived" tanks and artillery ", - reports "The Washington Post".

At the same time, American journalists draw attention to the fact that all the troops are on Russian territory, as a result of which any accusations against Russia regarding intentions to invade Ukraine are absolutely groundless.
