Russia says it won't start war in Ukraine
The Herald|January 29, 2022
RUSSIA'S leading diplomat has said Moscow will not start a war in Ukraine but warned that it will not allow the West to "trample on" its security interests.    

US President Joe Biden warned Ukraine's president on Thursday that there is a distinct possibility" Russia could take military action against its neighbour next month.

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov responded yesterday: “There won't be a war as far as it depends on the Russian Federation, we don't want a war.

"But we won't let our interests be rudely trampled on and ignored." Tensions have soared in recent weeks, and the US and its Nato allies worry that the concentration of about 100,000 Russian troops near Ukraine heralds Moscow's intention to attack the ex-Soviet state.

Russia has repeatedly denied having such plans but demanded Nato promises Ukraine will never be allowed to join and the alliance rolls back deployments of troops and military equipment in eastern Europe.
