Russian Invasion of Ukraine Looks Imminent
Cause for concern as Russian forces continue to build on the border of Ukraine...
From NBC News
Russia has already assembled 70 percent of the forces it would need to launch a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the latest government assessment said late Friday amid spiraling tensions in the region.
An invasion would likely cause significant casualties, killing or wounding up to 50,000 civilians within weeks, according to the official, who discussed the internal assessment on condition they not be identified.
Were President Vladimir Putin to decide on this course of action, capital Kyiv would likely be captured in the early days of the invasion, possibly within the first 48 hours, the official said describing the assessment.
