New Delhi: Day of Unity will be celebrated in Ukraine on Wednesday amid fears of Russian attack on Ukraine. The President of Ukraine (Volodymyr Zelensky) made this announcement in a Facebook post. In the first Facebook post, Zelensky said in an address to the nation that we have been told that the date of the Russian attack on Ukraine is 16 February. Meanwhile, he announced to organize ‘Day of Unity’ in Ukraine on Wednesday. However, his spokesman Sergii Nykyforov later said that Zelensky had spoken of the February 16 attack on Ukraine based on ongoing media reports. The US has already warned Ukraine about Russia’s attack. But the President of Ukraine said that he has not yet found satisfactory evidence in this regard. A day earlier, the US warned about an increase in the number of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border. It is being said that more than 1.30 lakh Russian soldiers have been deployed on the border of Ukraine. In his statement, Ukraine’s leader called on his people to exercise restraint despite a three-sided encirclement by Russian troops, which Russia called it a military exercise.
US citizens to leave Ukraine immediately
A Pentagon spokesman says the US still cannot believe Vladimir Putin has decided to strike Ukraine. He may do so without warning. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the US is temporarily shifting its embassy operations in Ukraine from Kiev to Lviv. He also said that we urge American citizens still in Ukraine to leave Ukraine immediately. Input: ANI
