State Department accuses Russia of “using” ceasefire to regroup troops

WASHINGTON, January 6 – RIA Novosti. US State Department spokesman Ned Price said the US was concerned that Russia could use the temporary ceasefire to regroup and then intensify its offensive.

“We are concerned that Moscow may use the potential pause in the war to re-equip, regroup and re-attack,” he said.

According to a State Department spokesperson, Washington is skeptical of Russia’s statements about the temporary ceasefire.

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to declare a ceasefire along the entire line of contact in Ukraine from 12:00 on January 6 to 24:00 on January 7.

Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council secretary Oleksiy Danilov said that Kiev would not support the Christmas truce proposed by Russia.
