The United States has said more than 100,000 Russian troops have been deployed newly along the Ukrainian border. Moscow has deployed these troops on the northern border of Ukraine. Neighboring country Russia has deployed about 100,000 troops on the Ukrainian border. There are fears that Russian troops could invade the country at any moment.
The Pentagon made the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating 'Moscow continues to increase military mobilization on the Ukrainian border.' This information was given by the news agency AFP in a report on Thursday.
A Pentagon spokesman, John Kirby, said in a statement that 'there is a need for more troops to be deployed in Russia.
'We can't say exactly how many troops have been deployed because the number of troops deployed at the border is increasing,' he said.
Referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Kirby said he had definitely deployed 100,000 more troops in the north and was working to increase troop and other capabilities. In addition, we have received indications that more strategically important additional battalions are moving to the Ukrainian border.
Neighboring Russia has long deployed about 100,000 troops along the Ukrainian border. The country has also sent a fleet of warplanes, including tanks and artillery, to the Ukrainian border. There are also fears that Russian troops could invade the country at any moment. However, Moscow has repeatedly claimed that it has no plans to invade Ukraine.
A Pentagon spokesman added that every day he (Putin) was adding options. Every day at the border he is increasing his capacity. Putin is working every day to further destabilize an already heated region.
However, the United States has strongly said over the importance of Putin's role in resolving the crisis. In Kirby's words, President Putin could easily restore stability in the region by withdrawing troops from the border and pursuing a diplomatic path.
Earlier this week, the United States said that Russian President Vladimir Putin could order an attack on Ukraine at any time. A couple of days ago, Jack Sullivan, the National Security Adviser at the White House, the residence of US President Joe Biden, said that President Putin could order an attack on Ukraine in a few days or weeks.
'We are in a middle ground now,' he said at the time. Russia could take military action against Ukraine any day. Or it could be in a few weeks from now. Or Russia may choose the diplomatic route.
Sullivan later told ABC's 'This Week' that there was a strong possibility that Russian President Vladimir Putin would order an attack on Ukraine. It could happen tomorrow, or within a few weeks. By mobilizing troops on the border, Putin has moved to a position from which he is able to act aggressively.
Russia, however, has repeatedly said that Moscow has no plans to invade Ukraine. Although Russian troops have been deployed along the Ukrainian border, members of the military remain in Russian territory in accordance with international law.
