Ukraine, Poland and Britain are looking to form a partnership to strengthen regional security.

On February 1 Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmygal and his Polish counterpart, Mateusz Morawiecki said that they were working with Britain to boost three-way cooperation in the face of "Russian aggression."

The buildup of tens of thousands of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border has prompted fears of an invasion.

When asked about the US's attitude towards this alliance, a State Department spokesperson told the Accent that "the United States fully supports international efforts to de-escalate the situation and negotiates a diplomatic resolution to Russian aggression against Ukraine."

"We stand ready to support sincere efforts at progress from all sides. At the same time, we have spent the past few months rallying our Allies and partners in response to Russia’s military buildup on Ukraine’s borders. We are united and prepared to respond decisively and together to whatever Russia does", a State Department spokesperson said.

The United States also reaffirms its support for Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity and calls on Russia to withdraw its troops from Georgia.

"The United States also steadfastly supports Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. Russia invaded Georgia in 2008 and has occupied parts of Georgia ever since. We call on Russia to fulfill its obligation under the 2008 ceasefire agreement with Georgia to withdraw its forces to pre-conflict positions", a State Department spokesperson said.
