Are Russian forces preparing to fight a war in Ukraine?
- Up to 130,000 Russian soldiers are stationed near Ukraine’s borders

Up to 130,000 Russian troops are stationed close to Ukraine’s border, where Russia is demanding security guarantees from the West. Are Russian forces preparing for war in Ukraine?
Says United State Russia has mobilized all the forces necessary to launch military action any day now, and what may happen during the next few days may endanger the entire European security system.
But Russia has repeatedly said that it has no plans to invade, and insists it has no plans to attack Ukraine.
The director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, Sergei Naryshkin, denounced the “dangerous lies” spread by the United States and Western capitals.
But the threat of a Russian invasion is taken seriously given that Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014 and seized Crimea.
The NATO Secretary General warns that the risk of conflict is very real.
The United States says a Russian invasion could happen any day now, but does not know if President Vladimir Putin has decided to go ahead with it.
Writer and political analyst Dr. Wael Al-Alami told Studio Now that Russia has increased the number of its soldiers on Ukraine’s borders in defiance of the West to implement its demands, all of which have been rejected.
While writer and political analyst Hazem Al-Ghabra says to Studio Now that Germany is today the spearhead against Russia in the Ukraine file, and there is a united European front and within NATO against Russia.
