The USA has warned its European partners about a possible Russian military operation against Ukraine as Bloomberg reported.

According to the agency, Washington's assessments are based on information that the American side has not yet shared with the EU. Officials familiar with the White House say this information is backed up by publicly available evidence.

However, the White House has not yet commented on this information.

At the same time, Bloomberg sources close to the Kremlin say that the Russian Federation does not intend to start a war with Ukraine yet, but wants to show that it is ready to use force if necessary. However, an offensive, according to another source, is unlikely, as Russian troops will face public resistance in Kyiv and other cities.

As we reported, Politico published new satellite photos taken by Western experts on Monday confirm recent reports that Russia is again concentrating troops and military hardware on the border with Ukraine. The images were taken by Colorado-based US space technology company Maxar Technologies.

However, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksiy Danilov denied this information and called it “deliberate disinformation”.

Later, Bloomberg published the report of Janes Company, which states that Russia is moving tanks to the Ukrainian border. This time, observers noticed a battalion of T80-U tanks in the Voronezh region.

President Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to the information of Western mass media about the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine. According to him, "psychological pressure" from Russia on Ukraine has not been effective for a long time.
