The Ukrainian government says Russia has assembled 40 000 troops in Crimea which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014. And another 40 000 near its eastern border close. To the Donbas region which is partially controlled by Russian-backed separatists. The most likely reading of the situation is that it’s a tactic of intimidation both for Ukraine. But also for the new us administration a bargaining tool perhaps in a possible u.s Russia summit.

They are just being you know used as the territory to stage further know the effort. To undermine Ukraine more than 13000 people have died in the conflict since 2014
