Potential flashpoints between Russia and Ukraine
December 14, 2021 - A Russian military build-up near Ukraine has raised fears in Kiev and the West that Moscow might invade its neighbour.
Moscow has denied plans to attack Ukraine and in turn blamed Ukraine’s own military build-up in the east of the country, where Ukrainian forces have been fighting with Russia-backed separatists since 2014. Russian officials alleged that Kiev might try to reclaim the areas controlled by the rebels by force. Ukrainian officials have denied an intention to do so, AP said.
