“I’ll definitely say that we’re aware of Ukrainian military reports concerning Russian troops’ movements around their borders. And we’re discussing our concerns about this increased tension and a ceasefire violation as well as regional tensions with NATO allies,” Jalina Porter, Principal Deputy Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State said at a press briefing on April 2.
Porter stressed that the United States remained concerned about recent escalations of Russian aggression and provocative actions in eastern Ukraine.
As reported, Russia escalated the situation in eastern Ukraine in late March. In particular, on March 26, four Ukrainian servicemen were killed and two more were wounded in a shelling by the Russian occupiers near the town of Shumy in Donetsk region. In addition, according to the intelligence reports, the Russian side pulled 28 battalion tactical groups to the state border of Ukraine.
