US State Department spokesperson: Russia’s increased military presence in occupied Crimea is unacceptable
US again urge Moscow to fulfill Minsk Agreements
The statements of the Russian leadership to strengthen its military presence on the borders with Ukraine, as well as in the occupied Crimea does not meet the spirit of the commitments made by Moscow in terms of reducing the level of violence in Ukraine.
United States' Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs John Kirby said this during a briefing.
"We have seen these statements and know the media’s opinion on these messages. The increased military presence of the Russian Federation in occupied Crimea is unacceptable. We believe that it is contrary to our efforts aimed at ending the violence and de-escalation of tension in the east of Ukraine in accordance with the commitments made by Russia", said Kirby.
The representative of the Department of State again called on Moscow to implement the Minsk agreements.
