US sounds fresh alarm over Russia invasion fears

 


The US secretary of state has said the extension of
Russian military drills in Belarus has made him
more worried about an imminent invasion of
Ukraine.
Antony Blinken said Moscow's decision to keep
about 30,000 troops in Belarus, next to Ukraine,
amid raised tension in eastern Ukraine, suggests
this.
His warning came as unidentified US intelligence
sources said Russian commanders have been
ordered to invade.
But Ukraine said talk of an imminent Russian
invasion was "inappropriate".
Its Defence Minister Alexei Reznikov said an attack
"tomorrow or the day after tomorrow" was unlikely
as no Russian "strike groups" had yet formed near
the border.
Russia has denied it plans to invade its neighbour. A
Belarusian statement blamed the "deterioration of
the situation" in eastern Ukraine as one reason for
extending the drills in Belarus that were due to end
on Sunday.
Explosions have been continuing in Ukraine's
eastern Donbas region this weekend, amid
increased clashes between the Ukrainian
government forces and Russian-backed rebels.
