US, NATO 'info hysteria' causing security tensions - Kremlin

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov accused NATO and the United States on Monday of escalating security tensions regarding Ukraine by spreading "a huge amount of false information."

"We state and want to draw your attention to the fact that the escalation of tensions is carried out through information actions and concrete actions taken by the United States of America and NATO," Peskov told reporters. "I mean the information hysteria that we are witnessing, it is generously framed by a huge amount of false information, just lies," he added. Peskov also warned that Ukraine's military buildup near the Russian border could signal it is preparing for "offensive actions."

The US has warned that Russia could attack Ukraine "at any time" and decided to evacuate its staff from the embassy in Kiev, citing "increased threats of Russian military action."
