The United States has called Russia’s withdrawal from the Ukrainian border a “lie.” This information was given in the report of BBC online on Thursday.
A senior official in US President Joe Biden’s administration told reporters on Wednesday that the United States had dismissed Russia’s claims that troops were being withdrawn from the Ukrainian border.
“The Russian government has said it is withdrawing troops from the Ukrainian border,” the official said. Through this demand, they have received a lot of attention from all over the world, including the United States. But now we know it was a false claim. ‘
The United States has said no Russia has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said the Biden administration was “certain” that Russia had increased its military presence on the Ukrainian border.
The U.S. official claimed that an additional 7,000 Russian troops had been sent to the Ukrainian border, most of them on Wednesday.
Moscow says it is withdrawing troops from the Ukrainian border after military exercises.
But Western officials say they have seen no evidence to back Moscow’s claim.

Recently, Western tensions with Moscow erupted over the deployment of Russian troops on the Ukrainian border.
The West claims that Russia has deployed millions of troops along the Ukrainian border. They could launch an attack on Ukraine at any time.
Russia has denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Russia’s intelligence have been made more than once. According to Moscow, troops have been mobilized on the Ukrainian border as part of a military exercise.
The first announcement came on Tuesday from Russia about withdrawing troops from the Ukrainian border. The next day, Wednesday, the Russian government said it was withdrawing more troops from Crimea.
But the West says Russia’s words and deeds do not match.
