Ukraine Accuses Russia of Military Buildup

Ukraine's security council chief has accused Russia of a massive military buildup near Ukraine's border that raises the threat of an invasion.

Andrei Parubiy, secretary of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council, told Wednesday's briefing in Kiev that Russia has deployed more than 80,000 troops close to the border, creating the "threat of a full-scale invasion from various directions."

In Moscow, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov denied a military buildup on the Russia-Ukraine border. He also said Moscow has accepted a request that Ukraine made Tuesday to conduct a surveillance flight over the Russian territory to make sure there is no threat.

Russian forces have secured control over Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, and President Vladimir Putin says Moscow is ready to "use all means" to protect Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
