US State Department comment Russian military equipment movement near Ukraine


A few weeks ago Ukrainian military began to build up its military near Donbass self-proclaimed republics - Donetsk People's Republic and the Lugansk People Republic.


There are talks of launching an offensive on Donbass.

Russia, begun to mirror the movement, moving its own forces closer to the Donbass republics. Being the guarantor of the Minsk agreement they have the obligation to protect the said republics.

This is how the US State Department reacts:
