Western governments should be getting prepared for escalation from the Russian side. Michael Carpenter, the U.S. permanent envoy in the OSCE said so during the talks with Russian delegates.

Reuters reported that, citing the official on January 13.

“At the present time, we’re facing a crisis in European security. The drumbeat of war is sounding loud, and the rhetoric has gotten rather shrill," Carpenter stated.

According to him, one needs to "take it very seriously". 

The OSCE representative added that the deployment of 100,000 Russian troops, cutting-edge weaponry, artillery, electronic warfare systems and ammunition next to the border with Ukraine raises a lot of questions about Russia's intentions.

He claimed it's a form of attack that the Russian forces have been practicing all the time, including that in the occupied Crimea. Tarasov said the threat of a landing of Russian assault team from the sea is real; howeve, Ukraine's Armed Forces will be able to deter any such attempt, Tarasov said.
