Russian military buildup near Ukraine larger than in 2014 - US

United States Department of Defense Spokesman John Kirby said on Monday that the Russian military buildup near the border with Ukraine is larger than in 2014 when the Russo-Ukrainian War broke out.

Speaking with reporters during a regular press briefing, Kirby said that it is not "clear" that Russia has been increasing its military presence in the area for the sole purpose of training.

Earlier, the US Federal Aviation Administration released a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) advising against flying over certain areas of Russia and Ukraine due to political instability and renewed classes in Western Ukraine.
