British instructors, who are stationed in Yavoriv, ​​Lviv region, are ready to evacuate from Ukraine in the event of a military invasion by Russia. This is reported by the Daily Express, citing sources.

According to the interlocutors, in the near future the British command will analyze the situation. Army chiefs are to mount a full "review" of Operation Orbital to ensure all UK personnel can be "safely withdrawn" if Moscow orders in troops.

The decision to evacuate the British will be made by the Chief of Staff of Joint Operations of the British Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Charles Strickland, who is reported twice a day about the situation on the Ukrainian-Russian border, the sources say.

"He will carefully assess the impact of any interference on our ability to withdraw the military and cannot allow them to be trapped there," the source said.

British forces have provided short-term training to the Ukraine Army as part of an international package of support following aggression in 2014.

Earlier Bloomberg, citing satellite images studied by the defense intelligence company Janes, reported that Russia continues to build up its military forces near the border with Ukraine.

At the same time, it became known that the European Commission has already prepared sanctions against Russia in case of its invasion of Ukraine.
