Biden: Moscow has moved "more troops" toward the Ukrainian border | DW News

US President Joe Biden said Thursday that there is a “very high” risk Russia will invade Ukraine in the coming days.

“We have reason to believe that they are engaged in a false flag operation as an excuse to go in,” the US leader said.

Biden’s comments come amid reports that Ukrainian forces and pro-Moscow separatists exchanged fire in the east of the country.

At NATO headquarters in Brussels, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said that Russia was flying in more combat and support aircraft.

Amid the heightened tensions, the United Nations Security Council convened Thursday for a meeting on Ukraine.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who changed travel plans at the last minute to speak at the meeting, said that US intelligence shows Russian forces are preparing to attack Ukraine in the “coming days.”

Blinken said the potential invasion is a “moment of peril” for millions of people. He said Russia’s targets in Ukraine include the capital, Kyiv.

He also warned that Russia would attempt disinformation campaigns through state media to spread “false alarms” and carry out a “fake or real” attack to claim a pretext for invasion.

“Russia may describe this event as ethnic cleansing or a genocide,” he said.

  1. SIR SECRETARY AUSTIN, Maybe Putin was just following this latin saying"Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum." "if you want peace, prepare for war". since NATO has been very aggressive in eastward expansion. GOD BLESS.

  2. the hole is NOT due to shelling… otherwhise the wall inside would be blackened of the heat of the shell impact. This was probably done by a crane with a metal ball hitting in the wall . the bricks are nicely under the hole because of that hit , NOT an bomb impact. The russians should consider hiring special effects people from Hollywood if they want something to look 'real'

  3. How many wars has America been in or involved with in the last 30years??? Why are people still believing what America has to say?? They are the only country expanding there military bases and military missiles systems around the world, America have destabilised this planet over the last 30years funding arms and militias have violated serious human rights, how many innocent people have been killed for there own economic interests and control??? Wake up people

  4. the insurgents fired on the helicopter and it crashed to the ground, killing all aboard. Of the 30 Americans killed, 22 were Navy personnel, and 17 were SEALs. These included two bomb specialists and 15 operators in the Gold Squadron of DEVGRU, or Team Six, the highly classified unit that conducted the raid that killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan the previous May. In addition to the SEALs, the others killed in the Chinook crash included five other Naval Special Warfare (NSW) personnel, three Air Force forward air controllers and five Army helicopter crew members.

    The attack on August 6 was the most devastating day in SEAL Team Six history, as well as the single largest loss of life for U.S. forces since the war in Afghanistan began in October 2001. More than twice as many NSW personnel died in the Wardak crash than were killed on June 28, 2005, during Operation Redwings. That day, eight SEALs and eight members of the members of the Army’s 160th Special Forces Operations Regiment (SOAR) were killed when insurgents shot down their Chinook helicopter in Kunar province, near Asadabad. Three SEALs involved in a firefight on the ground were also killed, in what would stand as the deadliest day in NSW history since the Normandy landings on D-Day, June 6, 1944.

  5. Putin should not take Biden's bait and get dragged into a hot war in Ukraine, which is engineered to crash markets and block Nord2 pipeline which benefits Germany. Putin should address West directly in English or German.

  6. Что известно о массовых захоронениях в Донбассе, о которых говорит СК РФ?:

    "это известно так же, как о Жертвах Катынского преступления — Oни не анонимы…, мы знаем, кто это сделал!", ну Жертвы в Донбассе могут быть как в Катыни, русские просто убили весь проукраинский народ Донбасса, теперь хотят свалить это на Украину как Катынь на Германию и немцев.

    Это старая русская ложь, история повторяется, Путин ничего нового не придумал и не придумает.
