Russia insists it has NO plans to invade Ukraine with 100,000 troops at the border and U.S. calls Moscow's demands 'non-starters' on first day of crunch talks

Russia and the U.S. indicated they remained a long way apart after the first day of crunch security talks on Monday when the Russian negotiator insisted Moscow had no plan to invade Ukraine and his American counterpart dismissed his demands as 'non-starters.'

Russia has deployed 100,000 troops and heavy weapons near Ukraine's border while demanding that NATO rules out admitting the former Soviet state or advancing into what it sees as its backyard.

US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said Russia told her they do not intend to invade Ukraine, and that the build-up was 'typical maneuvering.'
