Russia continues to pull its troops to the Ukrainian border, and soon their number may double.

In addition, he noted the importance of coordinated actions at the international level to prevent an escalation of the situation and hold Russia accountable for its military actions.
“If Russia refuses the proposed reasonable solutions, then we and the whole international community will see who is to blame for the destabilization of the situation”, Mashovets said.
