US seeing false provocations, more Russian forces at Ukraine border -Blinken

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Friday that everything Washington has seen happening on Russia's border with Ukraine in the past 24 to 48 hours is part of a scenario of creating false provocations designed to elicit a response.

Speaking at the Munich Security Conference alongside German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, Blinken said of Russia's claims it was pulling forces back from the border, "on the contrary, we see additional forces going to the border including leading edge forces that would be part of any aggression."
