Russia has positioned some 150,000 troops near Ukraine’s borders, based on US President Joe Biden and now the Ukraine defence ministry.
They embrace about 30,000 troops participating in army workouts in Belarus, and are geared up with all the pieces from tanks and artillery to air energy and naval assist.
US officers say Russia has the troops in place to invade Ukraine “at any time”.
However Russia denies it’s planning an assault and accuses the West of hysteria.
Newsnight’s Diplomatic Editor Mark City experiences from Kyiv.
He’s joined by the US Ambassador to Nato Julianne Smith.
