Russia promises not to invade Ukraine
Oh ok, so all the Russia forces already in Ukraine are just there to hang out?
Check it out:
Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoygu promised U.S. counterpart Chuck Hagel this week that the Kremlin won’t send in troops massed along Ukraine’s border into the country, as pro-Russian separatists in the restive region have requested.
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel received “assurance” from his Russian counterpart, Sergei Shoygu, on Monday that the Kremlin would not send troops amassed on its western border with Ukraine, where separatist forces have called for Moscow’s assistance.
“Minister Shoygu reiterated his assurance that Russian forces would not invade Ukraine,” read a statement by the Department of Defense. “Sec. Hagel emphasized how dangerous the situation remains and expressed his desire to find a responsible way forward.”
