The movement of Russian troops across the country should not concern other states since this does not pose any threat to them, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday, commenting on a remark by the Ukrainian military on Russia’s military buildup along the border with Ukraine, TASS reported.

“The Russian Federation transfers the Armed Forces on its soil as it wants to. This should not concern anyone and this is not posing any threat to anyone,” Peskov stressed.

Moscow is taking “all the necessary measures to ensure security of its frontiers,” he stressed. Peskov noted that “the Russian troops have never taking part and are not participating in armed conflicts on Ukraine’s soil.”

“As for the participation of Russian troops in the armed conflict on Ukraine’s soil, the Russian troops have never taken part in it and are not participating now,” he stressed.

“And we, the European countries and all world states would not like the civil war in Ukraine as a result of provocations and provocative steps by Ukraine’s military to flare up again,” he stated.
