The Russian army is stationing armament and troops near the border with Ukraine, Reuters reported Thursday, citing a witness working for the news agency.

Most vehicles at the Kuzminsky firing range reportedly have no license plates, and soldiers have removed insignia off their uniforms.

The report by Reuters reads that "they match the appearance of some of the forces spotted in Eastern Ukraine".

Kiev and the West argue Moscow is backing separatists in Ukraine's Donbass region, while Russia systematically denies involvement.

The past few months have seen a fragile ceasefire, with occasional episodes of armed violence, following the Minsk agreement brokered by Germany, France and Russia in February.

Russia's Defense Ministry has not yet commented.
