Biden and Putin to hold call amid Ukraine invasion fears
US President Joe Biden and Russia’s Vladimir Putin will speak via video call on Tuesday, the White House says, amid mounting tensions over Ukraine.
It comes after Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the US had evidence that Russia had made plans for a “large scale” attack on Ukraine.
But he added it was unclear if Mr Putin had made a final decision to invade.
Russia has denied any such intention, and accused Ukraine of executing its own troop build-up.
In a statement released on Saturday evening, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Mr Biden will “underscore US concerns with Russian military activities on the border with Ukraine and reaffirm the United States’ support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine” during his call with the Russian president.
Ukraine says Russia has deployed armoured vehicles, electronic warfare systems and 94,000 troops along their shared border.
It is the largest massing of Russian forces on its borders since it annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
Citing intelligence reports, Ukraine’s Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov said Moscow could be planning a military offensive at the end of January.
The Russian troop movement has strained already tense relations between Russia and the US.
On Friday, Mr Biden warned he would make it “very, very difficult” for Mr Putin to “go ahead and do what people are worried he may do”.
The US and its European allies have discussed imposing sanctions on Russia if it takes aggressive action.
While Ukraine is not a Nato member, it has close ties with the bloc and has received Western weapons including US Javelin anti-tank missiles.
Russian officials have denied any plans for an invasion, and say the border troops are there for military exercises.
Moscow has accused Nato of engaging in provocative behaviour by holding drills in the Black Sea, off Crimea. Russia’s foreign ministry also said Ukraine has itself sent 125,000 troops to their shared border. Kyiv declined to comment on the claim.
is yet another article where the future of NATO is clearly seen to be under threat and highlights the threat of war if NATO keeps expanding its border member countries facing Russia. The Bible says that NATO will not survive, there must be a break down in the past relationship between Europe and America for Europe to move into the sphere of a new relationship with Russia as the Bible Predicts and has done so for over 2500yrs in Bible Prophecy that is continuing to be played out in Current World Events. So yes, yet another article that highlights the issue of the challenge that is facing NATO. This article highlights yet again the fulfilment of Bible Prophecy spoken 2500 years ago. The Bible reveals that The EU willbecome a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice. Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army, yes NATO will come to an end and Russia will end up militarily linked to this EU ARMY. But Russia will never join the EU as Putin will never give up Russia’s sovereignty.
So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ’s Return.
This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East. Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”. Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days. So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe. It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.
Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.
