Boris Johnson warns of biggest war since 1945

Boris Johnson considered the Russian invasion of Ukraine inevitable because of the "evidence" and the beginning of the offensive plan. He said a Russian attack could spark the biggest war in Europe since 1945.

The planned Russian invasion of Ukraine could turn into the biggest war in Europe since 1945, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in an interview with the BBC.

"I'm afraid to say that the plan we're seeing is for something that could really be the biggest war in Europe since 1945 just in terms of scale," Johnson said.

He called the Russian invasion of Ukraine inevitable, as "evidence that cannot be embellished" points to it. At the same time, according to him, Russia has already begun "in a sense" to carry out the attack plan.

Russian troops can enter Ukraine not only through the Donbass, but also from Belarus and the vicinity of Kiev, Johnson said, citing intelligence data from US President Joe Biden.




Earlier from Jens Stoltenberg

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg accused the Russian authorities that, contrary to statements, they are not withdrawing troops from the border with Ukraine, but, on the contrary, are increasing their military presence. He considered alarming signs of a violation of the ceasefire in Donbass, "false statements" about a possible genocide of the inhabitants of the self-proclaimed republics and the evacuation of the population to Russia.

Western politicians have been warning about a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine for more than four months. In addition, Western media regularly give dates for the possible entry of troops with reference to American intelligence or unnamed interlocutors.

So, in early February, Bloomberg, citing sources in Kiev, reported that Russia would launch an offensive against Ukraine on February 15. At the same time, Politico, citing a source, wrote that Biden, during online negotiations, called February 16 the date of a possible invasion. At the same time, the publication indicated that the information may be preliminary. On the night of February 15-16, Reuters broadcast live from Kiev, but there was no invasion.

The Kremlin has repeatedly denied plans to invade Ukraine, accused Western countries of fueling the conflict and pointed to the right of troops to move inside Russia. On the eve of the “night of the invasion”, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced a conspiracy between the Western media and politicians in order to hide their “own aggression” and aggravate the situation in Ukraine. Later, the Russian embassy in the United States noted that the American side had unleashed a "flywheel of anti-Russian hysteria" and was engaged in "self-hypnosis" to suggest the inevitability of a Russian attack.

The Ukrainian authorities are skeptical about claims of a Russian invasion and urge the West not to sow panic in the country. The day before, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Oleksiy Danilov indicated that he did not see the risk of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. “Today we can say that targeted provocations by Russia are possible. To do this, we must respond with our armed forces, our security and defense sector forces,” he said.
