Russia - Putin: Ukraine has concentrated almost 125,000 troops in the Donbas region

Russia (bbabo.net) - The Ukrainian leadership has sent a large number of military personnel to the southeast of the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said after Russian-French talks in Moscow.

Answering questions from journalists, French President Emmanuel Macron explained the current behavior of the Kiev authorities in this way: “President (of Ukraine Vladimir) Zelensky is the president of a country on the border of which there are 125,000 Russian troops, so he is nervous. This was not the case at the beginning of 2021.”

“But hasn’t Ukraine concentrated? The same 125,000 people are now concentrated in the Donbas region,” Putin retorted.

"They (the Kiev authorities - approx.) twice tried to resolve the issue of Donbass by military means and did not hide it, they used equipment and aviation. Who will give us a guarantee that this will not happen (again)?" he added.
