MOSCOW - Russia has a right to move its military forces around its territory the way it likes, a Kremlin spokesman said on Friday, after German Chancellor Angela Merkel told President Vladimir Putin to pull back the build-up near the border with Ukraine.
Dmitry Peskov also told a daily conference call with reporters that the situation in eastern Ukraine was “very unstable... creating risks of full-scale combat operations.”
