The weak Biden administration is warning Russian President Vladimir Putin against his plan to invade Ukraine.
During a recent interview, Vice President Kamala Harris said, “If Russia and Vladimir Putin violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine there’s going to be serious consequences, and we’re very clear about that.”
Ukrainian leaders have been furious with Joe Biden’s handling of the crisis.
Beginning in early December, Russia drastically increased its threat of military action on the board of Ukraine. An alarming U.S. intelligence document indicated there will be a massive invasion into Ukraine by Russia.
Just one month later in January, the US State Department has issued a level 4 travel advisory and ordered Americans in Kyiv to leave Ukraine due to imminent war.
Family members of US Embassy personnel in Kyiv were ordered the leave Ukraine due to “threat of military action.”
“Do not travel to Ukraine due to the increased threats of Russian military action and Covid-19. Exercise increased caution in Ukraine due to crime and civil unrest. Some areas have increased risk.” – the State Department said in an emergency alert.
“On January 23, 2022, the Department of State authorized the voluntary departure of U.S. direct hire employees (USDH) and ordered the departure of eligible family members (EFM) from Embassy Kyiv due to the continued threat of Russian military action. U.S. citizens in Ukraine should consider departing now using commercial or other privately available transportation options.” the State Department said.
“There are reports Russia is planning significant military action against Ukraine. The security conditions, particularly along Ukraine’s borders, in Russia-occupied Crimea, and in Russia-controlled eastern Ukraine, are unpredictable and can deteriorate with little notice. Demonstrations, which have turned violent at times, regularly occur throughout Ukraine, including in Kyiv.” the Department of State added.

A document was initially obtained by The Washington Post that predicted an invasion could occur in January by the former Soviet republic.
U.S. intel reveals that Russia has been amassing a huge number of troops at multiple possible invasion points along its border with Ukraine.
The Post reports that Russia is in the process of positioning 175,000 troops for a swift and decisive invasion of Ukraine.
“The Russian plans call for a military offensive against Ukraine as soon as early 2022 with a scale of forces twice what we saw this past spring during Russia’s snap exercise near Ukraine’s borders,” the Post reported.
The Post says they have confirmed this information with “an administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity.”
“The plans involve extensive movement of 100 battalion tactical groups with an estimated 175,000 personnel, along with armor, artillery, and equipment,” the official added.
“U.S. citizens in Ukraine should be aware that Russian military action anywhere in Ukraine would severely impact the U.S. Embassy’s ability to provide consular services, including assistance to U.S. citizens in departing Ukraine. For more information, please review what the U.S. government can and cannot do to assist you in a crisis overseas.”
“The Department asks all U.S. citizens in Ukraine to complete an online form so that we may better communicate with you. This is especially important if you plan to remain in Ukraine.”
The State Department also ordered US citizens in the Ukraine to begin evacuating by commercial flights.
State Dept: “We’ve authorised the departure of some US government employees, but we have ordered the departure of all family members of US government employees at our Embassy in Kiev. The State Department has also elevated our travel advisory for Ukraine to level four.”
