Russia violating ceasefire agreement in Ukraine: US
April 23 , 2015
The US has alleged that Russia is deploying “additional air defense systems” in conflict-hit eastern Ukraine in violation of the ceasefire agreement.
The US State Department has also accused Russia of training rebels in the area and increasing its forces near the border.
Earlier in April, around 300 US paratroopers came to Ukraine to train with government forces, a move that was slammed by Kremlin.
In the past year, more than 6,000 people have been killed in the conflict between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russia separatists.
