The conflict in the eastern region of Donbass between Kiev and the breakaway Donetsk and Luhansk republics has been ongoing since 2014 when the republics proclaimed their independence from the central government after then-leadership was toppled.
The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that Ukraine has sent half of its armed forces to Donbass over the past few months. Moscow also expressed concern about the transfer of NATO's military equipment to Russian borders and the increase in the number of Western instructors in the breakaway region.
