On Friday, Russia denied that it had any plans to attack Ukraine after reports in US media said Washington believed Moscow was plotting an invasion. Russia also said that US military activity in the Black Sea is a “threat to regional security.”
Citing anonymous sources, Bloomberg reported Thursday that the US briefed European allies on the threat of a Russian invasion but provided no information on how the US reached the assessment. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the US reports were a “hollow and unfounded attempt to incite tensions.”
“Russia doesn’t threaten anyone,” Peskov said. “The movement of troops on our territory shouldn’t be a cause for anyone’s concern.”
The US and Ukraine have been hyping up the presence of Russian troops inside Russia near the border with Ukraine. Russia has pointed to the increase in US and NATO military activity in the Black Sea as a reason to have more military forces in the region.
“We view the US aggressive military activity in the Black Sea region as a threat to regional security and strategic stability,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement, according to Tass. “The intensity of NATO air reconnaissance near the borders of the Russian Federation in the Black Sea continues growing.”
Last week, the US deployed two warships to the Black Sea to train alongside NATO allies. On Thursday, Russia said it scrambled a fighter jet to intercept a British spy plane near Crimea.

Everyone knows it was bullshit. Doesn’t matter. The American public will buy into it. That’s how the machine works.
American public? They are deadened.If you take media(MSMs) for”public” you are right.
Living off from pay check to pay check, overwhelming majority of Americans do not have time think of these matters which are of vital importance.So the interested groups get away with what they want and these overwhelming majority suffer the consequences
That same overwhelming majority of Americans are tuned in nightly to “Dancing with the Stars” or some similar shit show on tv. You give the average American way too much credit. Most could care less about anything except their own petty little lives and are a bunch of jingoistic morons. 155 million of the idiots voted for one of the old senile bastards that ran during our most recent presidential election.
Austerity imposed on US workers pays for this. Barricades will one day be built in front of pentagonian bases currently occupying their country. The unemployed will party hearty and discuss rapid evolution to real democracy.
Notice it is always the “Western” speculations that are reported as if they were facts. Russia has states specifically that it has NO plans to invade Ukraine UNLESS it is provoked. Keep away from Donbass and Crimea.
How many thousands of Middle East and African migrants have traveled through Ukraine?
If you don’t know another thing about Ukraine/Russia – the key thing is that Ukrainians and Russians feel that they are brothers – they don’t want to kill each other. My Grandmother was a Russian who lived in the Ukraine – she felt that they were “hillbillies” – but they were also hers. The nationalist Ukrainians sre leftovers from Nazi Germany.
Russia denies.But doesn’t matter. Did Iraq deny possession of WMDs? Victoria Newland, Antony Blinken and Jake Sullivan will decide if Russia has intentions to to invade Ukraine. And they will give marching orders to Biden accordingly
