Ukraine demands ‘swift’ action to ‘deter’ Russia from invading and warns Moscow could launch a military operation ‘in the blink of an eye’

Ukraine has today demanded ‘swift’ action to ‘deter’ Russia from invading and warned Moscow could launch a military operation ‘in the blink of an eye.’

The alarm was raised earlier this month by Western countries over reported Russian military activity near Ukraine.

And the United States said it has ‘real concerns’ about the new troop build-up on the border.

At a media briefing Ukranian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba today said: ‘It’s better to act now, not later.

‘What we are seeing is very serious. Russia has deployed a large military force in regions close to Ukraine’s state border.’

‘If Russia decides to undertake a military operation, things will happen in literally the blink of an eye.’

Mr Kuleba’s words come days after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky held a press conference in Kiev about the situation with Russia.
