Russia's media, on the other hand, reported that a number of senior members of the ruling party had asked President Putin to send weapons, artillery and even armored forces to help pro-Russian separatists in the east of the country.

In addition, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to remarks by US President Joe Biden that he would impose personal sanctions on Putin in the event of an invasion of Ukraine.

Peskov said such sanctions "would not harm President Putin in any way, but would be destructive to relations and trust between the two countries."

Meanwhile, heavy tension was felt in the border area between Russia and Ukraine.

Large forces of the Ukrainian army were seen on the main roads in areas adjacent to the territories held by pro-Russian separatists in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

Batteries of air defense missiles were deployed near the town of Mariupol and local police deployed checkpoints at entrances to border towns.
