Breaking News: Attack Terrible, US and UK troops begins fight in ukraine, Russia seeking to invade
The US has threatened Russia with the “mother of all sanctions” after the UK said it is “highly likely” President Vladimir Putin is seeking to invade Ukraine.
Western allies are hoping to prevent an incursion of Ukraine, with an estimated 100,000 Russian troops amassed near the border with Ukraine causing serious concern that Moscow intends to invade.
UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said: “We think it’s highly likely that he is looking to invade Ukraine. That is why we’re doing all we can through deterrence and diplomacy to urge him to desist. That’s why we are strengthening our sanctions regime here in the United Kingdom.”
But she told the BBC that the prospect of British soldiers fighting alongside Ukrainians against Russia is “very unlikely”.
The US is seeking to step up pressure on Russia over Ukraine at the UN Security Council but any formal action by the council is extremely unlikely given Russia’s veto power and its ties with others on the council, including China
