"We have continued to see a large volume of equipment flowing from Russia into Ukraine" in violation of the recent peace agreements signed in Minsk, Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said, according to the Voice of America.

"Russia's actions have been destabilizing throughout the region," he added.

According to him, Russia has also stepped up military air operations over Europe. "There’s been an uptick to Russian air activity in the region," he said.
