Ukraine could face the worst-case scenario of a Russian invasion as soon as next week, and Europe faced one of its most perilous security situations since the early 20th century. This was stated by British foreign minister Liz Truss at the Munich Security Conference, The Guardian reports.
“We need to prepare for the worst-case scenario and that worst case scenario could happen as early as next week. The reality is that Russia does want to turn the clock back – they want to turn the clock back to the 1990s and before,” she said.
She noted that over the past week there has been a doubling of disinformation, as well as “false-flag operations in the Donbas.”
“In the last week alone, we’ve seen a doubling of disinformation, and we’ve seen false-flag operations in the Donbas region. I’m afraid that Russia has shown that they are not serious about diplomacy,” the British foreign minister added.
US President Joe Biden on Sunday, February 20, will convene a meeting of the US National Security Council on the situation around Ukraine.
According to the press secretary, Biden is monitoring the situation in Ukraine. The national security team confirmed the start of the Russian attack at any time.
