Russian forces gathering on the border with eastern Ukraine may be poised to invade, the White House warned today, as the government in Kiev said that the prospect of war with Moscow was continuing to grow after the annexation of Crimea.
“It’s deeply concerning to see the Russian troop build-up on the border,” Mr Blinken told CNN. “It creates the potential for incidents, for instability. It’s likely that what they’re trying to do is intimidate the Ukrainians. It’s possible that they’re preparing to move in.”

We see him moving forces in the south in a position where he could take the southern region over to Moldova.”Nato officials are concerned that Mr Putin could have designs on Transnistria, a restive Russian-speaking region in western Moldova also known as Trans-Dniester, where separatist leaders have demanded to be allowed to join Russia following the annexation of Crimea.Mr Breedlove, the Nato commander, said during remarks at an event held by the Marshall Fund thinktank that in the Kremlin’s view, the region was the “next place where Russian-speaking people may need to be incorporated”.
“There is absolutely sufficient force postured on the eastern border of Ukraine to run to Trans-Dniester if the decision was made to do that,” said Breedlove, “and that is very worrisome.”
Moldova’s President Nicolae Timofti warned Mr Putin last week against considering the annexation of Transnistria.
