Citing ‘latest information’, UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss says Russia could invade Ukraine any moment, urges Kremlin to de-escalate.

The United Kingdom’s foreign minister has said Russia could invade Ukraine “at any moment”, citing the latest intelligence seen by London.“Latest information suggests Russia could invade at any moment and we urge the Kremlin to deescalate,” Liz Truss tweeted on Monday.

Meanwhile President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has affirmed that Ukraine still wants to join NATO despite Russia’s opposition and some Western countries’ scepticism over Kyiv’s bid to become a member of the transatlantic security alliance.

Speaking in Kyiv alongside German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Zelenskyy said he believed his country should “move along the path we have chosen” in the face of spiralling tensions with Moscow, which has massed an estimated 100,000 soldiers and advanced weapons around Ukraine’s borders.

His remarks came after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov advised President Vladimir Putin to continue talks with the West on Moscow’s security demands. Washington and NATO have to date rejected Russia’s main requests.
