BREAKING NEWS: US Intelligence Knows Something Very Bad is Getting Ready to Happen in Ukraine Due to the Perfect Storm of Things That Have Happened Over the Past Week in the Russian-Ukranian War, so Now President Biden and the White House Strongly Urge Americans to Leave Ukraine IMMEDIATELY; Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant Worker Dies From Shelling.

The U.S. State Department issued a warning over the threat of increased Russian strikes on Ukraine during the week of its independence day on Aug. 24, urging remaining Americans in Ukraine to leave the country. Kyiv is bracing itself for fresh Russian attacks that its President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has warned may be “particularly nasty.”

The U.N. continued to sound the alarm over the situation at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, Europe’s largest, demanding a demilitarization of the area and warning that the world is facing a moment of “maximum danger.” A worker at the plant died of his injuries due to Russian shelling near the facility, Ukraine’s state energy company said.

Meanwhile, the volume of grain leaving Ukraine’s ports for export has increased to more than 700,000 metric tons.
