US State Department spokesman Ned Price said that the American authorities expect their Russian colleagues to clarify the military exercises that are taking place in the west of the country, near the border with Ukraine.
“De-escalation in this case would imply the return of the Russian military back to the barracks, an explanation of the country's leadership about these maneuvers or their termination, as well as the return of all heavy weapons to their places of normal storage,” Price said.
According to him, progress in the US-Russian security talks will depend on an “atmosphere of de-escalation.”
remember that recently the Western media and the Ukrainian side have been reporting about the allegedly impending Russian military invasion of Ukraine.
Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that Russian troops inside the country can move as they please and are not going to who to attack.
