Over 100,000 Russian troops on the Ukrainian border

At a press conference on Monday, Josep Borrell said that more than 150,000 Russian troops are on the border with Ukraine. His office later corrected the number to more than 100,000 troops.

More than 100,000 Russian troops have been moved to Ukraine’s border with Russia, the press office of the EU diplomat Josep Borrell said after Ukraine’s foreign minister briefed his EU counterparts.

Borrell said the European Union is not currently intended to impose new economic sanctions or expulsions of Russian diplomats, despite saying the military build-up on Ukraine’s borders was the largest ever.
