The administration of US President Joe Biden told Volodymyr Zelensky that Russia was preparing a full-scale invasion in the next 48 hours.

Newsweek writes about this  with reference to representatives of American intelligence.

It is also reported that aerial observers allegedly recorded a violation of Ukraine’s airspace by Russia. According to reports, a Russian aircraft, likely a reconnaissance aircraft, made a short flight over Ukraine on Wednesday morning. 

The source added that such a warning was sent to Kiev for the third time in a month.

“Putin cannot keep so many troops in the field for longer,” the source said, commenting on the likelihood of a Russian invasion.

The Pentagon estimates that the invasion could include airstrikes, cruise missiles and a ground operation. It is noteworthy that the attack of the Russians can come not only from the occupied Donbass, but also from Belarus – to Kiev.

Another administration official says the operation should begin with a cyberattack, followed by a ground incursion, likely at night. At the same time, it is noted that Russia’s plans may change depending on daily events.

    • Biden and his cabinet sound more like reporters than leaders. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen an administration doing a play by play game and making predictions instead of warnings. Its surreal. Trump said during his presidency he kept reminding Putin and called him like 16 time and kept telling him, “Don’t do it…don’t do it…don’t do it.” Now we have a president that says, “He’s going to do it, he’s going to do it, he’s going to do it…” Quite a difference. Quite a difference in results too!!
