Ukraine threatens Russia, but it seems Russia is not being dissuaded. Russia has assembled nearly 80,000 troops on the border with Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Biden timidly decides not to move Navy ships into the Black Sea after Russia warned him over the weekend not to do so.
What is happening in Ukraine? The Russians apparently placed around 80,000 troops along the border:
Ukraine has warned Russia it will suffer “ very painful ” consequences if it invades as Vladimir Putin continues to mass his forces in Eastern Europe.
Dmytro Kuleba, the country’s foreign minister, said today that Moscow is “ openly threatening ” Ukraine with “ destruction ” by stationing 80,000 troops along its border – with more arriving every day .
He issued the warning following a meeting with the foreign ministers of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia – NATO allies in the region – by declaring that “the four of us condemn the worsening of the situation by Russia “.
“The world is on the side of Ukraine and international law, and this is one of the elements to prevent Russia from reckless actions,” he added.
Elsewhere, it was revealed that Joe Biden was preparing to impose sanctions on Russia in response to bounties given to US troops in Afghanistan, attempts to interfere in the US election, and the SolarWinds cyberattack of federal government data that the US intelligence services attribute to Moscow.
A few days ago, Russia and China told Biden to stay out of Ukraine and Taiwan. It seems that Biden obeyed:
