“The invasion will begin in the coming days”: Biden made a statement after the resumption of fighting in the Donbass


February 17, after renewal fighting in the Donbass, US President Joseph Biden made a statement to reporters while on the lawn near the White House in Washington. He said the threat of a "Russian invasion" of Ukraine remains "very high."


All signs point to Russia poised to enter Ukraine soon. The invasion will begin in the coming days

- he specified.


Biden noted that he was not going to communicate with Russian leader Vladimir Putin about the current situation for the time being. The American leader explained that Moscow not only did not withdraw its troops from Ukrainian borders, but, on the contrary, increased the number of forces and means. Moreover, Washington suspects that the Russians are now conducting “false flag” operations (alluding to the DPR and LPR) in order to get an excuse for an “attack”.

According to Biden, de-escalation around Ukraine can be achieved through negotiations. At the same time, he has not yet familiarized himself with Moscow's response to proposals for security guarantees, so he cannot touch on this topic.

We remind you that on February 17, the head of the US State Department, Anthony Blinken, spoke at the UN Security Council with a plan to de-escalate around Ukraine. At the same time, the Russian Federation handed over to the United States and NATO responses to proposals for security guarantees.

Note that on February 16, Estonian intelligence distributed informationthat the "Russian invasion of Ukrainian soil" was postponed closer to the end of the month (tentatively on February 20-23). The next dates for the transfer of "aggression" will be announced later.

    Uncle Blinken's speech at the UN has just been shown live - all pure speculation.
    It's amazing, are all the local representatives so stupid as not to understand the obvious.
    Uncle Kedmi is right, the Russian Federation has no choice but to strike at all the infrastructure facilities built by NATO in the Eastern European state formations after 1997, as soon as S. V. Lavrov gives the go-ahead in view of the obvious futility of the negotiations.

    Today Lavrov, while relaying his response to Sullivan, reiterated that in the event that Russian security requirements are abandoned, Russia reserves the right to conduct "military-technical measures." At the same time, Ukraine intensified shelling of the LDNR, i.e. Ukraine is not going to implement the Minsk agreements. No one knows what it is - military-technical measures, but it seems that these will be measures to force Ukraine to stop shelling. And measures of a military nature.

      Nobody knows what it is - military-technical measures

      Uncle Kedmi, in an interview with Soloviev, popularly explained what is meant by military-technical measures - a missile attack on the military infrastructure of NATO and probably on the one that was built after 1997 in Eastern Europe, and also substantiated the answer to Solovyov's question why this would not be followed by a nuclear war .
      As I believe, the blow will be delivered by high-precision means with conventional warheads as soon as the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry gives the go-ahead when he has exhausted all the possibilities of diplomacy.
      In this scenario, the invasion of Ukraine loses its meaning, which the Russian Federation does not get tired of talking about.

    This is how you need to be afraid of these "terrible Russians" (Russians) in order to believe that a 100-strong group can invade and occupy a state with an area of ​​​​600 thousand square meters. kilometers with 40 million people?
