Russia plans to target Ukraine capital in lightning war, UK warns
Nato members began sending additional ships and fighter jets to allied countries in eastern Europe yesterday as Boris Johnson said that Russia had massed enough troops close to Ukraine for a “lightning war” in which it would try to seize Kyiv.
The UK prime minister’s comments came in response to fears of a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine. Nato said its members were putting military forces on standby for a potential attack.
The White House also announced that US president Joe Biden would hold a video call to discuss Ukraine later on Monday with European leaders, including Johnson, French president Emmanuel Macron and German chancellor Olaf Scholz.
白宫宣布，美国总统乔•拜登(Joe Biden)将于周一晚些时候与约翰逊、法国总统埃马纽埃尔•马克龙(Emmanuel Macron)和德国总理奥拉夫•朔尔茨(Olaf Scholz)等欧洲领导人举行视频通话，讨论乌克兰局势。
