Ukraine Crisis: America and Britain say that Russian President Vladimir Putin can order the occupation of Ukraine at any time before the end of the Winter Olympics being held in China on 20 February. It will be Europe’s biggest security crisis in several decades. Russia has deployed more than 100,000 troops to the Ukrainian border and has denied reports of attacks on the country.
Britain is preparing to give a package of military aid and financial assistance to Ukraine. This is being done in the midst of the growing threat of Russia’s attack on this country. This information has been given by the spokesman of the British Government. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is scheduled to visit Europe later this week to end the standoff with Russia and show support for Ukraine.
However, no information has been received regarding which countries Johnson will go to. It has been said from his office that he wants to engage more with the Nordic and Baltic countries.
The spokesman said, ‘The Ukraine border crisis has now reached a critical juncture. From the information we have received, Russia is planning to attack Ukraine any day. The US and Britain say that Russian President Vladimir Putin can order an occupation of Ukraine at any time before the end of the Winter Olympics in China on February 20.

Russia accuses Western countries of spreading lies
Russia says that Western countries are spreading lies to hide their own provocative activities. At the same time, a British government spokesman said that Johnson is working with allies for a supportive package to help Ukraine. An announcement will be made regarding this in the coming days. Britain has also been supplying Ukraine with anti-tank weapons and training personnel. “There is still a window of opportunity open for de-escalation and diplomacy and the prime minister will continue to work with our allies to take Russia back,” the spokesman said.
Boris Johnson trapped in a domestic political crisis
Britain is supporting Ukraine at a time when Prime Minister Boris Johnson himself is caught in a domestic political crisis. Police are investigating lockdown parties at his Downing Street office and residence. Police is also interrogating him. Allegations of breaking lockdown rules have undermined Johnson’s authority and some lawmakers from his ruling Conservative Party as well as opposition leaders have asked him to resign. (agency input)
