The Prime Minister warned on Tuesday that the intelligence that we are seeing today is still not encouraging” as more tactical battalion Russian troops have been brought closer to Ukraine border.
Boris Johnson told Sky News today that Russia is building a new military field hospital in Belarus near to Ukrainian border which can “only be construed” as an attack is imminent.
US intelligence agencies believe that Putin will order the attack into Ukraine at 3am on Wednesday which would target Kyiv’s military and government command and control centres.
It is believed the Kremlin will order a barrage of air strikes then tanks will cross into Ukraine whilst amphibious warships could attack the southern coastline.
Senior US sources said a Russian attack in Ukraine would be “almost certainly from multiple points.”
The Mirror’s senior American source warned their reporters who are in Kyiv with a simple one line message, the source said, “3am Wednesday.”
Johnson said there are “mixed signals” coming out of the Kremlin and warned, “we think that they have a huge preparation ready to go at virtually any time.”
The Prime Minister said that there are some “positive signs” from the conversations with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“This is … about the wider stability of Europe,” she said.
“And it’s about wider global stability, and the message that we give to aggressors and we have to give the message to Vladimir Putin that there can be no reward for aggression.”
