UKRAINE frontline soldiers vow to defend borders as Russian troops amass at the border and tensions continue to rise.
Russian troop movements near Ukraine's borders have alarmed Kyiv and its Western allies in recent weeks, though the soldiers here say they are ready for any escalation from Russia.
U.S. officials have warned Russia might launch a new attack against Ukraine as early as the second half of January when the ground will be harder, making it easier for tanks and other armor to move swiftly.
Russia has demanded security guarantees from the West in order to defuse the current crisis.
Moscow denies it is planning a new military offensive and accuses Kyiv of building up its own forces in the east of the country.
