Moscow envoy to talks with NATO threatened that "time is running out, if we do not reach an agreement with the West - we will have to act in other ways to ensure our security" • Biden: "Estimates that Russia will operate militarily in Ukraine"



The winds of war in Eastern Europe intensified significantly tonight (light for Thursday) when Russia's envoy for talks with NATO allies, Konstantin Gavrilov, threatened that the time for a diplomatic solution to the crisis between Russia and Ukraine was running out and hinted that his country would prepare for military action.

"The moment of truth is approaching when the West will have to accept our proposals or we will have to find other ways to get the guarantees needed for our security. We believe that a way can be found to reach mutually agreed solutions, but time is running out. The countdown has begun," the Russian envoy said.

At the same time, US President Joe Biden tonight answered questions from reporters at the White House and warned of Russian military action in Ukrainian territory: "I believe Putin will act in Ukraine. He will go in there. He must do something. But he did not see anything like it. The economic sanctions we are planning in the event of an invasion. "

"It is one thing if it is a small and negligible military operation or we have to find ourselves thinking what we should or should not do," the president added, in an attempt to draw a clear line to the US response to Russian action in its neighbor to the west.

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, who is visiting Ukraine, also commented on the possibility of a Russian invasion, saying, "I believe Russia will be able to act with surprising speed. The Russians will be able to double their forces at the border at an unprecedented rate."
