8,500 US soldiers on high alert for deployment on Russia border

The risk of war between Russia and Ukraine is growing all the time. The US Department of Defense, or Pentagon, has placed 8,500 troops on ‘high alert’ for deployment in Eastern Europe as a result of this. Members of the combat team, health workers, intelligence, and surveillance teams were among the soldiers, according to Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

‘No orders have been issued for the deployment of these soldiers, nor have they been assigned any mission,’ John Kirby said. However, US troops may be sent to Eastern Europe to help NATO. NATO will decide whether or not to deploy additional US forces in Europe.

Johnson also issued a warning to Putin.

Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, has warned Russian President Vladimir Putin of dire consequences if Ukraine is attacked. After the Russian military announced in February that it would conduct maritime military exercises 150 miles off the coast of Ireland, Johnson made his statement. Russia has announced manoeuvres in the Atlantic, Pacific, Mediterranean, and North Sea with its 140 warships.

According to the United Nations, the best way to avoid a crisis is to engage in political dialogue.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres has called for the start of a political dialogue between Ukraine and Russia to de-escalate tensions. “The United Nations seeks to resolve issues between the two countries through dialogue rather than war,” said UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric. We urge all parties to take immediate action to end the war and de-escalate the border situation.

Ukraine received anti-tank guided missiles from the United Kingdom.

To deter a possible Russian attack, Britain has handed over a large number of state-of-the-art anti-tank missiles and Anglo-Swedish anti-tank guided missiles to Ukraine. The Russian side is expected to be the first to attack the Ukrainian border with tanks, according to reports. Russia has deployed about 8,000 tanks on the Ukrainian border, according to NATO military experts. On the Ukrainian border, Russia has also deployed 36 Iskander missile launchers.

America has the ability to take direct action.

In the current situation in Russia and Ukraine, the United States has also decided to take direct action. Pentagon officials presented Biden with several options for dealing with Russia on Saturday in Maryland. One of these is to send US troops, fighter jets, and warships to countries bordering Russia in order to apply military pressure. At any time, between a thousand and 5,000 American soldiers could be dispatched to these countries.
