WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The Russian Embassy in the United States has called on Washington to focus on a diplomatic settlement of the intra-Ukrainian conflict instead of fuelling the ongoing "military rage" by journalists around the allegedly looming Russian invasion of Ukraine.
This comes in response to an earlier statement made by State Department spokesman Ned Price, in which he claimed that US concerns over a Russian "incursion into Ukraine" have not diminished, accusing Moscow of allegedly deploying an additional 7,000 troops near its border with Ukraine over the last several days.

"It is obvious that the flywheel of the anti-Russian hysteria spinned in the United States does not allow American colleagues to look at things objectively. Self-hypnosis about the inevitability of the Russian attack persists", the embassy wrote on its Facebook page late Wednesday.

"We urge US Department of State to stop fuelling journalists' 'militarist rage' and focus on truly important issues of the diplomatic settlement of the intra-Ukrainian conflict", the Russian diplomatic mission added.

Moscow has denied these accusations, repeatedly stating that it is not threatening anyone and at the same time expressing strong concerns over NATO's military activity near Russia's borders, which it deems a threat to its national security. Moscow has also said Russia has the right to move troops within its own territory.
