Joe Biden has said that he will not approve “red lines” created by Moscow as suspicions mount. The fear was about Russia, intending a coming invasion of Ukraine. The US president noted that he would make it tough for Russia to occupy its neighbor. Meanwhile, US channels have noted that intelligence officials worry that an invasion could start in early 2022.
Ukraine announces that Russia has increased its Army at the border and acquired some 94,000 forces there. A FaceTime between Mr. Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin to ease uncertainties will occur this week. Mr. Biden told journalists that he is hoping to have a long conversation with the Russian leader. He also said that he would not acknowledge anybody’s red lines.
While Mr. Biden did not start what detailed steps the US intends to take. American and Ukrainian administrators told again this week that serious financial sanctions are on the chart against Russia. On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov noted that the US had imposed new sanctions.
US intelligence officials worry the Kremlin intends a multi-front attack. The Kremlin is planning it as soon as early the following year, involving about 175,000 battalions. Administrators have also reportedly witnessed a rise in propaganda actions through the utilization of media outlets and proxies.
Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov has stated that he thinks the most probable timing of Russian escalation is the end of January. The most senior military officer of Britain noted that they needed to stay on their guard. Gen Sir Nick Carter also noted that he distinctly wished no war would happen with Russia.
He also added that Nato needs to prepare itself for that eventuality. Tensions between Ukraine and Russia are nothing new. Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula in 2014. And after it began to back, a separatist rebellion in Ukraine’s east has witnessed some 14,000 individuals assassinated in periodic wars. More previously, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has walked against Russian interests.
