The United States and France are concerned about Russian military action in Ukraine

(Washington) US and French diplomats Antony Blinken and Jean-Yves Le Drian spoke on Saturday about “worrying Russian military action” in Ukraine following the deployment of Russian troops on the Ukrainian border.

The Ukrainian Department of Statements reports that they have based themselves on concerns about Russian military operations in and around Ukraine and reaffirmed their unwavering commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

France had already warned Russia on Friday against “any new attack on Ukraine’s regional integrity” following the deployment. Washington was also concerned about Russian troop movements near Ukraine and warned Moscow against an invasion.

Russia annexed the Ukrainian Peninsula from Crimea in 2014. Since then Ukraine has been in conflict with pro-Russian separatists in the eastern part of its territory. Russia has been accused by Kiev and the West of supporting separatists militarily and financially, which it denies.
