Putin has said Russia has no plans to invade Ukraine, but has not commented on the estimated 130,000 troops stationed on the border.

Russia has also sent troops to its closest ally Belarus, saying the deployment was part of a joint military exercise.

On 14 February 2022, the British were warned to leave Ukraine before a possible invasion.

The prime minister has vowed to do everything possible to stop the Russian invasion as he urges Vladimir Putin to “step back from the double.”

President Joe Biden has warned Putin of “sharp and severe costs” amid fears that Moscow is looking for an excuse to attack.
