More from NBC News:
The United States and its allies have repeatedly warned of an imminent invasion by Russia, which has stationed some 130,000 troops near Ukraine’s borders to the north, south and east. Russia denies it is planning an invasion.
“We are told that February 16 will be the day of the attack,” Zelenskyy said in a statement posted on Facebook, without saying who provided this information.
President Biden says if Russia invades Ukraine, the U.S. will not hesitate to take action against Russia.
You’ll recall the former guy had a rather unusual relationship with Ukraine’s president. During Trump’s administration there were reports that Trump attempted to tie military support for Ukraine to a request for an investigation into Biden.
US officials are warning Russia could launch an invasion of Ukraine as soon as this week but are still holding out hope that diplomacy can prevail.
