Putin has sent 'nearly 100 percent' of combat forces amassed at the border into Ukraine



The United States assesses that Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent into Ukraine “nearly 100 percent” of the combat forces that were amassed on the border, a senior Defense Department official told reporters on Monday.

But the U.S. does not believe that Russia is “preparing to move additional battalion tactical groups from elsewhere in the country to shore up what they’ve put into Ukraine,” said the official, who spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity.

“We have not seen any indication that [Putin] is going to go beyond the amassed combat power that he’s already developed,” said the official, who declined to provide an estimate of how many troops constituted Russia’s overall forces.
