On several occasions, from Moscow, they denounced that Western countries were increasing their military presence around Ukraine and in the Black Sea. It had strengthened in the recent weeks. However, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zajárova, said that the US indictments that Moscow was preparing an invasion of Ukraine were the backdrop for its military provocations.
In this context, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman revealed that the United Kingdom has already supplied about 460 tons of weapons to Ukraine. In the meantime, Zajárova said that Canada had sent more than 200 Special Forces agents to the Slavic country under the effect of protecting its embassy and evacuating ambassadors in an emergency.
