The United States is closely monitoring the situation in eastern Ukraine in coordination with Ukrainian officials as well as its allies and partners in the region.

Jalina Porter, Principal Deputy Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, said this at a press briefing on Friday, April 9, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

“The United States is concerned about the actions Russia has taken to escalate the tensions in Ukraine. We continue to monitor the situation closely in coordination with Ukrainian officials as well as our allies and partners in the region,” Porter said.

At the same time, she stressed that the American side made it clear to Moscow that the Russian Federation needs to refrain from any escalatory actions.

“And we will continue to hold them [Russians] accountable,” the principal deputy spokesperson assured.

As Ukrinform reported, the United States, other Western countries, as well as the EU and NATO, have come out in support of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity against the background of Russia's escalation in eastern Ukraine, as well as the pulling of Russian troops to the Ukrainian border.
