“I don't think you heard us from some podium pointing out the exact day of the 'invasion'. For some time now, you've been hearing us trying to get the message across that Russia has created the ability to attack at any time," said US State Department spokesman Ned Price.

He noted that the failed "invasion" does not mean that Washington had incorrect intelligence.

Meanwhile, on January 14, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the "invasion" of Ukraine could begin "between mid-January and mid-February."

Recently, Western media and politicians have been claiming that the Russian Federation is concentrating a military contingent on the border with Ukraine. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stressed that Russia is moving its troops within its territory and at its own discretion. He added that no one is threatened and no one should worry. Moscow believes that such reports serve as a pretext for the deployment of American troops and forces of the North Atlantic Alliance in Eastern Europe.

Claims of an "invasion" continue to come in despite the return of Russian soldiers to their places of deployment after the exercises. On Monday, February 14, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported that part of the exercises was coming to an end, and the other part would be completed in the near future.
