Vladimir Putin has deployed 55,000 troops on the Ukrainian border in Russia’s latest muscle-flexing exercise prompting fears of an invasion.

The sudden influx of feet on the grounds adds to up to 7,500 Russian soldiers already stationed in Ukraine.

Putin’s deputy defence minister Ihor Dolhov made the announcement in Kiev, where officials are said to be convinced Russia is attempting to topple the government.

Dolhov told Russian news outlet Liga.net at a press conference: ‘Currently, Russia has amassed about 55,000 servicemen near the Ukrainian border.

‘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.’

There have also been reports of another buildup of soldiers in Belarus near the Ukrainian border, according to Unian.

  1. I really wish the Fake News outlets like Daily Mail Online would finally realize that they are working for the NWO! This story is just pure anti-Russia Propaganda and fear-mongering for the idiot masses.

    Russia is not going to invade Ukraine! Why would Putin want the headache and expense of looking after a group of people who he will have to provide medical for? Remember Chernobyl…the gift that just keeps on giving? Many in Ukraine are in need of medical help due to Cancer because of the Radiation that is still being emitted by Chernobyl.

    Putin is putting troops on the border because for one…he doesn’t want any Ukrainians to slip into Russia and two, he knows that the USA has meddled in the Ukraine government ( just like they have in Libya, Egypt, Syria, etcetera) and doesn’t want any terrorists to cause harm in Russia through the Ukraine.

    Crimea is now part of Russia. They voted to join! There is a build up there because Russia has Military installations in Crimea from before and they have nuclear weapons which Putin doesn’t want in the wrong hands! Since Ukraine borders Crimea, it is only logical that Putin would have a build up of troops in Crimea!

    If Putin had wanted Ukraine…he would have already moved in. He wouldn’t dilly-dally on the outskirts for over a year or more!
