‘Major war in Europe’ could be triggered any moment, Ukraine president warns
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned early Thursday that a “major” European war could be triggered at any moment, as his country went on high alert with Western officials saying a full scale invasion of the country could happen at any moment.
Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Russian forces arrayed along Ukraine’s borders were in an advanced state of readiness. “They are ready to go right now,” Kirby said.
The latest images released by the Maxar satellite image company show Russian troops, tanks and other military equipment deployed within 10 miles of the Ukrainian border and less than 50 miles from Ukraine’s second-largest city, Kharkiv.
