US, Britain Doubt Pullback Russian Troops
By Stefan J. Bos, Chief International Correspondent Worthy News
WASHINGTON/MOSCOW (Worthy News) – The United States and Britain have accused Russia of lying about moving troops from Ukraine’s borders, saying Moscow is mobilizing for war.
A White House official said Moscow added more than 7,000 combatants in recent days, contradicting Russian President Vladimir Putin, who pledged that Russia “does not want war in Europe.”
British military officials also stressed that they noticed Russian armored vehicles, helicopters, and a field hospital moving toward Ukraine’s border.
“Contrary to their claims, Russia continues to build up military capabilities near Ukraine,” said Luitenant-General Jim Hockenhull, the British chief of defense intelligence.
He warned that “Russia has the military mass in place to conduct an invasion of Ukraine.
U. S. President Joe Biden’s administration suggested that hopes in the past 48 hours that Russia was steering toward a diplomatic solution to the crisis may have been premature.
