Russia has raised the alarm: the foreign Ministry of Ukraine said that it means

Moscow continues to threaten the Kiev military aggression

The sudden check of combat readiness of Russian troops from borders of Ukraine is a “threat of force” against Kiev. About this Twitter wrote the Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vasily Bodnar.

“Just don’t call me alarmist or alarmist… the sudden check of combat readiness of Russian troops, especially on our border, can’t be regarded as “threat of force”. Let the lawyers correct me if I’m wrong. And yesterday someone said that aggressive plans…” – wrote the diplomat.

Earlier it became known that Russia began a sudden check of troops, including at the border with Ukraine regions. The order came from the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. What parts are going to raise, not reported, but the Minister of defence RF Sergei Shoigu said that they will be in the Western (adjacent to Ukraine) and South (includes illegally annexed Crimea) military districts of the Russian Federation. Also exercises will be held in the Northern and Pacific fleets, separate connections under the Central government and in the airborne.

Earlier, defense Minister Andrei Taran said that the Ukrainian army is strengthening on the Crimean direction and prepared for a possible Russian attack.

We will remind, the American General Ben Hodges does not exclude a possible attack of Russia. See more details in the story:
