Imminent Invasion? US Boosts NATO, Pulls Embassy Families from Ukraine as Russia's Aggression Spark Fears of War

Brody Carter : Jan 24, 2022  CBN News

"If a single additional Russian force goes into Ukraine in an aggressive way, that could trigger response from us and Europe." -US Secretary of State Antony Blinken

[CBN News] The US is on the cusp of sending several thousand US troops to Eastern Europe, in what is becoming the worst security crisis to emerge between Moscow and the West since the Cold War. (Screengrab image)

As the high-stakes game of brinkmanship and diplomacy continues, the US is standing firm in its commitment to NATO allies by sending $200 million in military aid, including 90 tons of ammunition and anti-tank missiles. NATO countries are also sending military help in the event talks of peace fail.

"If a single additional Russian force goes into Ukraine in an aggressive way, that could trigger response from us and Europe," said US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

The US State Department is urging families of US diplomats in Ukraine to leave the country, although the embassy will remain open for now. They've also issued a level 4: Do Not Travel advisory, as tensions along the Ukrainian border become even more volatile.

"Do not travel to Russia due to ongoing tension along the border with Ukraine, the potential for harassment against US citizens, the embassy's limited ability to assist US citizens in Russia, COVID-19 and related entry restrictions, terrorism, harassment by Russian government security officials, and the arbitrary enforcement of local law," the advisory states.

More than 100,000 Russian troops are believed to be along the Ukraine-Russia border, as well as Ukraine's border with its northern neighbor, Belarus.

The British government now claims it has intelligence that Russia is plotting to install a pro-Russian leader in Ukraine. The UK says several former Ukrainian politicians have been recruited for the measure—Russia calls it "nonsense" and "disinformation".

"It is certainly possible that the diplomacy the Russians are engaged in is simply going through the motions and it won't affect their ultimate decision about whether to invade or in some other way intervene—or not—in Ukraine," Blinken said.

On Sunday, US lawmakers pushed for stronger sanctions and military aid to deter Russia's antagonistic leader Vladimir Putin.

"We need to be very aggressive in pushing back against President Putin, whether that's in the form of sanctions... as well as continuing to equip our Ukrainian friends, not only with defensive capabilities but also offensive weapons," said Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA).

Rep. Mike McCaul, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, warns that the world is watching the US reaction.

"It's not just about Ukraine, it's about China and Taiwan," Rep. McCaul said. "It's about the ayatollah and the bomb. It's about North Korea, they just fired off two missiles."

Over the weekend, White House officials said ...Biden might send several thousand US troops, in addition to warships and aircraft to NATO allies in Eastern Europe.

The latest Trafalgar poll shows nearly 85% of Americans believe the US should have a limited involvement if Russia invades Ukraine. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
