WASHINGTON, April 19 (Reuters) - The Pentagon said on Monday that Russia's military buildup near Ukraine was larger than that in 2014.

"It is certainly bigger than the one in 2014," Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said, but declined to provide a specific number.

He added it was not clear the movement of troops was for training purposes. (Reporting by Idrees Ali, Editing by Franklin Paul)
