Moscow rebels for Ukraine Conflict
Posted by on April 9th, 2021.

A top Russian official has warned that Moscow could intervene to help Russian-speaking residents in eastern Ukraine if Ukraine launches an all-out assault on separatists there.

Russian-backed separatist rebels and Ukrainian troops have been clashing in the east of the country.

Russia has also been building up troops on the border with Ukraine.

The official, Dmitry Kozak, said that Russian forces could intervene to “defend” its citizens.

“Everything depends on the scale of the conflagration,” he said.

He also warned that an escalation could mark the “beginning of the end” for Ukraine – “not a shot in the leg, but in the face”.

The United States and Germany have both expressed concern at the increase in tensions.

Why are tensions rising between Ukraine and Russia?

Russia has been increasing the number of troops at the Ukrainian border, but at the same time maintains that they should not be seen as a threat.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Russian troop numbers there were the highest since 2014, when the conflict in eastern Ukraine began. She described the situation as “deeply concerning”.

Russia has not detailed troop numbers, but the Ukrainian military asserted at the end of March that some 20,000 Russian troops had been moved towards Ukraine’s border. Video has emerged on social media of Russian trains moving heavy weaponry towards the region.

Clashes between Ukrainian troops and the Moscow-backed rebels inside Donbass have also increased in recent months.

  • Peace deal explained

For their part, the rebels said one of their fighters was killed on the same day when Ukrainian troops fired 14 mortar bombs at a village on the outskirts of the city of Donetsk.
