Russia not planning an attack - embassy

The Russian embassy in Washington has issued a statement advising the United States to abandon its plans of supplying Ukraine with more weapons, adding that Moscow has no plans to start an armed conflict.

"We stress once again: Russia is not going to attack anyone. The practice of moving troops on our own soil is a sovereign right. We call to end the hysteria and not to pile on tension around the Donbas problem. And most importantly - not to push "hotheads" in Kyiv towards new provocations," the diplomatic mission wrote in a post.

The embassy's comments come after Washington voiced concerns about Russia invading Ukraine from the territory of Belarus being that the two neighboring nations announced their intent to hold joint military drills.
