Secretary of State Antony Blinken says Russia has not followed through on its announcement to pull troops back from Ukraine’s border. [Related: Russia to Withdraw Some Troops From Ukraine Border]

On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Blinken was asked if the U.S. was seeing evidence Russia was pulling back its troops.

Newsmax reports:

“We’re not,” Blinken told host George Stephanopoulos. “Unfortunately, there’s a difference between what Russia says and what it does.

“What we’re seeing is no meaningful pullback. On the contrary, we continue to see forces, especially forces that would be in the vanguard of any renewed aggressions against Ukraine, continuing to be at the border, to mass at the border.”

Blinken noted that there is an imminent threat Russia could invade at any time. On Monday, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zalenskyy said he believe Russia could invade as early as Feb. 16th.

“We said that we were in a window of time in which the invasion could come at any time,” Blinken told ABC. “President [Vladimir] Putin’s put in place the capacity to act on very short notice. He can pull the trigger. He could pull it today. He could pull it tomorrow. He could pull it next week. The forces are there if he wants to renew aggression against Ukraine.”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said there hasn’t been any indication of Russian “de-escalation on the ground.”

“On the contrary, it appears that Russia continues the military build-up,” Stoltenberg said Wednesday. “And we have not received any response to our written document, our written proposals, that we sent to Russia on the 26th of January.”

Putin is cleaning out the Khazerian mafia which were rife in Ukraine, These Oligarchs were put in by Soros and Biden. They have plundered Ukraine’s wealth, trafficked women and children and the people are hungry and poor

globalists and their puppets; $oro$ and demonrats and rinos need to create another war since they lost trillions a day in 2016 to 2020 because Trump would not start one of their fake wars .

Wasn’t blinkyblinken in the obuthead administration? That’s what I thought, and he was absolutely, worthless there too. Putin is laughing at the disorganization of the two clowns running the US blunders of the government of hidenbiden and his minions.Looks like the russians are holding their exercises, like we do, and the US is blowing this out of proportion, like they always do.Quit fear mongering before u get us in a war we can’t win.

Every one screamed that Trump was going to get us in a war. Where are these people now that Biden is getting us into war. At least Trump knew what he was doing. The commander in chief now doesn’t even know who he is
