Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Oleksiy Danilov denies Western media reports of a possible concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine.

This is reported by UA with reference to Radio Liberty.

The NSDC secretary commented on the Politico publication, in which the edition, with reference to satellite photos, claims that Russia has increased the number of troops and military equipment near the Ukrainian border.

“There is a deliberate misinformation of the whole society. Let’s just say that what they write is not true. Today this is not true. We are watching all the processes, this is misinformation and it is not clear to us why they are doing this. What will happen tomorrow, we do not know, today there are no such concentration, such accumulation of what they write” – Danilov noted.

According to the NSDC secretary, the situation at the Russian-Ukrainian border has not changed in recent days. He added that satellite photographs should be “compared to the comparison”, for example, with photographs taken a month or two weeks ago. According to him, these will be the same photographs.

The American edition Politico released new satellite photographs the day before, which, according to it, confirm recent reports that Russia is again accumulating troops and military equipment on the border with Ukraine.

Earlier, several sources, including the authoritative American edition The Washington Post, wrote that in recent weeks Russia has resumed the movement of equipment and military to the border with Ukraine.

According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, as of November 1, no additional transfer of Russian units, weapons and military equipment to the state border with Ukraine was recorded.

To remind, the United States National Security Advisor to President Jake Sullivan said that the United States administration held consultations with allies on the situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border, and will closely monitor it. He commented on information from The Washington Post, published on October 31, that Russia was allegedly pulling troops and equipment to the Ukrainian border.
