“Once again we emphasize: Russia is not going to attack anyone.

The practice of moving troops on our own soil is our sovereign right.

We call for an end to hysterics and not to escalate tension around the Donbass problem.

And most importantly, do not push "hot heads" in Kiev to new provocations," the Russian Embassy in the United States said on Facebook.
