The United States accused Russia of provocations on the Ukrainian border and demanded an explanation


Washington accused Moscow of provocations on the Ukrainian border and demanded an explanation for the ongoing large-scale movement of Russian troops. This was announced on April 5, 2021 at a briefing by the official representative of the US State Department, Edward "Ned" Price, a former CIA officer, reports Reuters.


Price noted that the United States is extremely concerned about any attempts by Russia to intimidate Ukraine. The Americans do not care whether this is done on Russian territory near the border of the two countries or on Ukrainian soil. The functionary stressed that Washington in any case will support Kiev, as its ally, the agency concluded.

Note that over the past three months Kiev has been actively pulling troops to Donbass and to the border with Crimea, in every possible way hinting at the imminent "liberation" of these territories from the "occupiers". At present, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have concentrated almost all of their combat-ready units on the mentioned areas. As soon as Moscow began to take countermeasures, in the form of the redeployment of the RF Armed Forces on its territory, they started shouting from Ukraine to the whole planet that “the bully was being deprived of his sight” and calling for help from the West.

On April 5, the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov once again commented situation. According to him, the Russian Federation carries out the redeployment of troops solely for its defense and security, and does not pose any threat to the surrounding countries. At the same time, he expressed concern about Ukraine's desire to start a military campaign in Donbass, launching a large-scale attack on the LPR and DPR.

    The United States accused Russia of provocations on the Ukrainian border and demanded an explanation

    Or maybe Americans from the beginning will explain to the whole world what they are doing in Syria. Syria is a sovereign state, brazenly invaded and stealing oil like bandits.

    Russians, have a conscience! We tried so hard to incite Ukraine against Donbass and they practically agreed. And then your maneuvers are at the borders. Ukrainians are scared, even though we promised support. Moral, but still.

    The Kremlin's justification in response to the ultimatum demands of the State Department is not clear. Is it really not enough courage to send those demanding in the right direction, with more specific explanations of how not to get lost on the way to your own home? The clowns in circus 404 are playing and it's time to end the show.

      and how should the performance be finished? find the most corrupt Ukrainians and appoint him as the main and loyal to Moscow, and understand the rest, forgive, wash and feed (as in the Pereyaslavl council)? or to cut this herd to zero to finish this many centuries-old masochism with ruins?

        In principle, if the State Department releases its mongrels from the chain, then the Kremlin will consider themselves not bound by the obligation, in taking retaliatory actions against insolent neighbors, this is a red line, beyond which a political collapse can occur with subsequent military conflicts in the world. Both the Kremlin and the West understand this. The insolent State Department is trying to prevent the restoration of Russian influence in the post-Soviet space. But Russia, too, has been placed in conditions where the refusal to restore its historical borders will mean the collapse of Russia itself. Artificial formations such as Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan, the Baltic states and other similar enclaves in the Asian region will cease to exist as a result of a military conflict if it occurs directly on the primordially Russian territory. The United States hopes, but apparently has a bad idea that at the moment the ocean will not save them from destruction.

          Vlad, you are probably right in many ways, but your words do not answer the question:

          and how should the performance be finished?

          historical borders of Russia or the Russian Empire? the empire included Finland, Alaska and part of California. hokhlyandiya was not part of Russia. in Georgia, militarily superior to any Balts, there was no conflict. and the United States did not help, and Russian tourists disappeared. Only rodents are getting smaller every day. and from a crest warrior like a bullet from shit.

    Washington accused Moscow of provocations on the Ukrainian border and demanded an explanation for the ongoing large-scale movement of Russian troops.

    In response, Moscow may demand an explanation for the violation of the US promise not to expand NATO to the East.

    The vicious arsonist is always the first to shout: "Fire, save!" It's about US policy. And yet, from the life of animals by analogy with the policy of Ze's leadership. Small dogs, when there is an owner nearby, can be very aggressive and warlike towards big strong dogs, even fighting breeds, considering, firstly, to curry favor with the owner, and secondly, they are sure that the owner is strong and he will protect in any case. But in the absence of the owner, such a dog will hold its tail, shaking with fear and huddled in a corner.

    another standby air shake since 2014. sanctions, if planned, will be in any case, but they will find a reason. The United States and Russia will support the fraternal Ukrainian people to the last Ukrainian. Neither American nor Russian servicemen will be there laughing those wishing to support brother Shevchenko in the fight against his godfather Bondarenko can go. the number of witnesses of the sect "baboon is also a man" is decreasing. For some reason, new Arsen Pavlovs do not appear. And among the natives, no one is close to him (although he is not an officer and beyond the river, as some did not go). And without a kick from the Shooters (Girkin) no Kharkivs will rise. Ukrainian is a proud bird, does not fly without a kick.

    The little man just does his job, is rude, voices what he is supposed to, "fulfills" the promised support.
    You shouldn't pay too much attention to this.
