Ukraine crisis: Putin accuses US of 'hysteria,' Biden warns of 'severe costs' | DW News

A phone call between the US and Russian leaders has failed to ease tensions over Ukraine. Presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin spoke after the US warned that Russia could invade Ukraine at any time. Moscow has dismissed the claim as hysteria. Ukraine’s forces are on high alert, as more than 100,000 Russian troops are gathered near the border. Germany has joined other countries in telling its nationals to leave Ukraine.
Ukrainian forces are training near the Black Sea. Urban warfare exercises hint at the kind of unrest they are preparing for.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, however, called for calm heads.

On Sunday, contingency plans turned real.
US staff at the Organisation for Security and Economic Cooperation based in the rebel held city of Donetsk, were packing up and heading home.
Just the latest group to decide that the risk of all out war is now too great.

  1. ☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
    SELF CONTROL and remain COOL… NO NEED TO SEND OUT GUNS….. NO FORCES: "EASY TO PUNCH PEOPLE " and spread lies… Hard to maintain utmost integrity in politics…… Even at work place.. terrible…

  2. WHO CARES WHAT RUSSIA DOES WITH UKRAINE?? HOW IS IT THE UNITED STATES PROBLEM?? The only logical thing I can think of is the US wants Ukraine in nato so it can build bases on Russia border.

  3. I believe that the governments of NATO, Europe and the USA have lost fear in the face of God.. Would the USA, England, France or Germany not defend their ethnic population in Ukraine… if Ukraine had the same actions against the French, Germans, or the British… as against the Russian ethnic population living in Ukraine… and which about 12,000 000-15 000 000 people? How would these countries react if their citizens forbade their language at school, religion, their history and demand to hate it, to consider it hostile..? and when people came out to protest against violations of their rights… declared them terrorists and sent an army to suppress the rebellion… declaring an anti-terrorist operation… the Russian Federation could not allow the oppression of its ethnic population living in Ukraine – the former republic of the USSR.. where Russians and Ukrainians have always lived together and had no conflicts and began to support the Russian population… and the government of Ukraine announced the aggression of Russia against Ukraine and the support of terrorists in the Donbass….The United States and the entire civilized world supported Albania by recognizing their right to sovereignty and independence… giving the right of an autonomous republic? Why, in relation to the Russian language, culture, population, there is no similar support in the right of ethnic groups to have their identity to preserve their nationality… Is this not stated in the UN Charter on small peoples and ethnic groups in other countries and their rights?… If in Mexico they begin to oppress Americans English speakers and persecute them… what will the United States do? or in Canada will begin to persecute the French and prohibit them from language.. education on French… identity?… or in Ireland they will begin to prohibit the English language and eliminate it by force…. I consider the conflict in Ukraine to be made specifically against the Russian language and the population in order to make Russia war on the territory of Ukraine.. stop its economic development.. divide Ukraine and Russia making enemies peoples who have been together in history… like in Great Scotland,Ireland, England… How Germany from the GDR and Germany became one country… just like Ukraine,Russia, Belarus.. it should be one people and one powerful country.. artificially divided by politicians, the Collective West

  4. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it :pray Convert yourself and believe in the Gospel. Romans 10 8-10: But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[a] that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
    I recommend checking the meaning of pharmacy from the Greek FARMAKEIA – literally the operation of medicine in the times of ancient Egypt or Assyria, biblical translation as the full meaning of this term

  5. Their may be SOME trigger happy citizens in the US but the majority of people don’t want to send their military youth into combat. The only people that threaten or want it have never been in it. Hopefully people in power see reason and no one gets hurt over political postering.

  6. Putin could honestly step up and make a speech stating:
    As tensions escalate, I feel for the wellbeing of the world I must take the lead to calm tensions. But I stand firm in my beliefs in regards to adversaries being near Russian borders.
    This would be a checkmate for Putin. Many around the world would respect him immensely for taking this position.
