Russia has no plans to invade Ukraine: Ambassador

United Nations, Feb 2 (TIWN) Russia's UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia has said that his country has no plans to invade Ukraine.

Russia's massing of an estimated 100,000 troops near the border with Ukraine has brought increasingly strong warnings from the West that Moscow intends to invade. Russia in turn demands that NATO promise never to allow Ukraine to join the alliance, and to stop the deployment of NATO weapons near Russian borders and roll back its forces from Eastern Europe.  The head of Russia's Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, on Sunday rejected Western warnings about an invasion.
