Ukraine declares “day of unity” as invasion fears develop – BBC Information
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has given a defiant speech to his nation, declaring that sixteenth February, the date on which US mentioned Russia may launch an assault, can be a “day of unity”.
Russia denies it plans to invade Ukraine, regardless of massing greater than 100,000 troops on the border.
The Kremlin says it can’t settle for that Ukraine – a former Soviet republic with deep social and cultural ties with Russia – may sooner or later be a part of Nato, and has demanded that that is dominated out.
Greater than a dozen nations have urged their residents to depart Ukraine, and the USA has mentioned an assault may start “at any time”. Nonetheless the US has mentioned not all hope is over of a diplomatic resolution to the Ukraine disaster.
