At present, no events or actions of military nature, which would differ significantly from what happened last spring, are observed near Ukraine’s border.

"At present, there are no events or actions of military nature, which would differ significantly from what happened last spring. The only difference in military terms that we are following is the situation in Belarus. What is radically different is the intensity of hybrid measures, primarily information ones, as well as the impact of these measures on the macroeconomic situation," Defense Minister of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov said during an hour of questions to the Government at the Verkhovna Rada, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He noted that the Ukrainian intelligence and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces are in constant contact with international partners and have all the information.

According to Reznikov, the difference in figures on the build-up of Russian troops near Ukraine’s border covered, especially in the international media, is due to the fact that Ukraine uses data on the area of ​​Russian military concentration of up to 200 km. These data more accurately reflect the trends, the minister said.

As reported, on December 5, 2021, Defense Minister Reznikov stated that the total number of Russian troops near Ukraine’s border could increase to 175,000.

On January 19, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said that Russia would need a million troops to plan a full-scale ground operation. As of now, there are about 127,000 Russian troops, including the ground component of 106,000, near Ukraine’s border. Danilov considers the current situation "uncritical".
