Vladimir Putin

Putin is deploying a huge number of troops on the Russian border with Europe

“The presence of the Russian regular army on the territory of Ukraine varies from 5,000 to 7,500 soldiers.

“In Crimea, this figure is 23,000 troops, of which 9,000 are on the administrative border.”

Relations between Russia and the west have become increasingly fraught in recent months, with Nato condemning Russia’s actions in Syria on several occasions.
