Moreover, the US is providing more troops to Ukraine over a probable Russian inversion if Russian President Vladimir Putin decides to attack the country. The discussion results of last week’s diplomatic talks, combined with the cyber-attack on the Ukrainian government websites and news of possible Russian preparations for a false flag operation in Ukraine all intensify the pressure.
President Joe Biden said that deploying US combat troops to Ukraine over Russia is off the table.

US officials still have zero ideas what Putin’s plans are, or whether he has even made up his mind to further invade Ukraine.

The deployment of troops from Russia’s Eastern Military District into Belarus on Monday, struck many US officials and Russian military analysts as particularly damaging, as have a spate of cyberattacks targeting Ukraine last week. On the other hand, others believe it is more likely that Russia would conduct a limited operation in eastern Ukraine aimed at securing a land bridge to Crimea.
