The U.S. Air Force previously stated that the maneuvers of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine are not obviously aggressive.

The U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Saturday refused to discuss with journalists information about the situation in the area of the Russian-Ukrainian border.

According to the White House press pool, Harris was asked in the French capital “whether there are signs that Russia is listening to the U.S. warning to retreat from Ukraine.” “I cannot discuss classified information with you, but, of course, we are very concerned about what is happening,” the vice president replied.

On Friday, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. Armed Forces, General Mark Milley, said that the U.S. currently believes that the maneuvers of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine are not obviously aggressive.

Earlier, the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the situation, called the insinuations of the Western media about plans to invade the territory of Ukraine groundless escalation of tension. He repeated that the movements of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation on Russian territory should not cause concern to anyone.
