"Russia declined to participate in today's OSCE meeting with Ukraine to explain its unusual military buildup on Ukraine's borders and in occupied Crimea.

Courtney Austrian, the Chargé d'Affaires at the U.S. Mission to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) recalled that a similar situation was in 2014, when Russia also refused to provide information about its military operations on Ukraine's border and to participate in such meetings. As a result, it turned out that Ukraine's concern about this was justified. 

As we reported earlier, the OSCE convened an emergency meeting on April 10 due to the buildup of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border in Donbas and in occupied Crimea. The meeting was initiated by Ukraine.
