New German Chancellor Olaf Scholz thrown in deep end with Russia: ‘Needs to be at centre’

  • November 25, 2021

Russia has been building up its forces along its border with Ukraine in recent days amid concerns that it may mount another invasion.

Almost 100,000 troops are stationed in the border regions near Ukraine, Kiev and Washington have both warned.

Russian-backed separatist forces have also carried out large-scale military exercises in Ukraine’s eastern Donbass region, according to the intelligence directorate of the country’s defence ministry.

Moscow has denied that it plans to launch an intervention in Ukraine, pointing to alleged provocations by Kiev and US warships in the Black Sea as reasons for its troop build-up.

Since Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula seven years ago, it has been funding a war in the Donbass, which has killed more than 14,000 people.
